Diversity Forums

APA members who are working to promote social, economic, and racial equity have come together at National Planning Conferences to share information, resources, and ideas. Members and others have explored how APA can do more for people of color in local communities, in the planning profession, and among our own members.


The first meeting in 2004 was attended by more than 100 people, a number that doubled by 2005.

At the 2008 Forum, APA rolled out the APA Ambassadors program.
