LGBTQ+ Inclusion and Representation in Planning: Why It Matters and How to Achieve It

APA Florida Event

[Virtual]

“Upholding Equity in Planning” is a virtual training workshop on equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) for planning practitioners to help transform planning practice. The Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA) and its EDI Committee are hosting the workshop with financial support from the APA’s Chapter Presidents Council.  Created and led by Castillo Consulting Partners, the workshop will review how racism and other systemic biases have created inequitable outcomes for society’s most vulnerable populations and communities, as well as how these inequalities directly affect planning practice. The workshop focuses on planners’ tools and strategies to address disparities and increase equity and inclusion in planning agencies and in the communities they serve. The workshop provides the framework and resources for planners to take action to create more equitable and just communities.  

Workshop Learning Objectives: 

  • Increase awareness about historical and present-day events, policies and practices that have shaped the planning profession and created inequities and disparities in communities, often using planning tools to uphold racism and oppression.
  • Discuss how to take action to address bias and oppression through effective community engagement in planning practice.
  • Give participants practical tools to uplift community needs and increase equity.
  • Review strategies to disrupt biases and promote inclusion and belonging in planning workplaces and within the profession, particularly for diverse and underrepresented planners.

 

Total workshop CM: 7.5 + Equity credit

Registration Cost: $60 per person/$25 per student
