Chicago - Equity in Planning Panel 2018

03:00 PM - 06:30 PM Central Standard Time

The WTS Greater Chicago Chapter is excited co-host the APA-IL Diversity Committee's annual Equity in Planning Panel discussion back to UIC. This year’s panel discussion will focus on issues of diversity and inclusion in the field of transportation planning.



The panel will feature:

  • Jacky Grimshaw (Vice President, Government Affairs, Center for Neighborhood Technology),
  • Dr. Jesus Barajas (Assistant Professor of Regional and Urban Planning, UIUC), and
  • Roberto Requejo (Program Director, Elevated Chicago. Elevated Chicago) 
  • moderated by Katanya Raby (Planner, Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, 2017 APA Emerging Planner of the Year).

The two-hour panel discussion will be followed by 1½ hour breakout session aimed at bringing together planning students and planning professional from a wide variety of backgrounds.

The APA IL chapter's Diversity committee organizes educational, mentoring, and networking events that promote the diversity in the planning profession, and provides resources for more inclusive planning practices. The fall event will be our second annual Planning for Equity panel and mentoring event, which we co-host with UIC planning students groups, including Women in Planning and Public Administration, Society of Black Urban Planners, and  LPODER. Last year, the event was broadcast by CAN-TV, and we hope to have similar coverage this year.
