    Results of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Training Needs Survey 2020 — APA-IL and APA-WI

    DOWNLOAD RESULTS HERE (PDF)

    This survey was conducted as a partnership of between APA-IL and APA-WI in February 2020.  It was designed to assess training needs in preparation for an upcoming diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) half-day workshop in the fall of 2020.   The training project is funded by the APA Chapter Presidents Council. 

    The survey addresses discrimination and climate in planning in Illinois and Wisconsin,  perceived training needs, the level of demand for DEI training, and stories of DEI problems in planning that could be useful in building a training program.  This survey does not limit itself to the training needs of planners and planning  organizations,  but also seeks to identify training needs of commissioners/elected officials and community members engaged in planning.
