\Workshop on December 3-5 Upholding Equity in Planning
The chapter will apply for a maximum of 13 CM credits for this program.
The Illinois and Wisconsin Chapters of American Planning Association (APA), with the help of the APA’s Chapter Presidents Council’s grant, have come together to create, coordinate, execute, and document a virtual training workshop surrounding diversity, equity and inclusion (D/E/I), called “Upholding Equity in Planning.” The workshop is geared toward planning practitioners in an effort to transform the way planning is done by planning professionals in their day to day work within communities.
The “Upholding Equity in Planning” workshop’s curriculum, created and lead by Castillo Consulting Partners, will acknowledge how institutional racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and white supremacy have created inequitable outcomes for society’s most vulnerable populations and layout how those inequalities directly affect our field of work.
Participants will be given real world tactics for embedding equity in their professional work. The workshop aims to take participants from passive allyship to active accomplices in dismantling oppressive structures and institutions.
