Women Supporting Future Planners Girls Who Plan
It is with great excitement that we announce that our Division is the recipient of the 2019 APA Division Achievement Award for Education Excellence! The Division will be recognized by APA for its development and implementation of our inaugural program: Women & Planning: The Next Generation, featuring the “Girls Who Plan” Program. This program is a collaboration between the Division and YEP! Youth Engagement Planning, a non-profit organization, to offer a program and member volunteer service opportunities that focus on an equity initiative to introduce urban planning to girls in grades K-12 to expand and strengthen the presence and leadership of women within our profession. Our Division has a firm belief that women bring a unique perspective to the planning profession and through the “Girls Who Plan” program, we are able to further the advancement of equity within our profession by reaching back and teaching our next generation of girls of all backgrounds about how to be a leader in planning!
