Refocusing the Equity Lens: Institutional Racism

Panel Discussion

What is it like to live, work, and seek to thrive in a white, cisgender, straight world as a nonwhite, non-cis, LGBTQ+ planner? In this session, sponsored by the Women and Planning Division, panelists discuss their encounters with institutional whiteness and straightness in practice, academia, and the field.
