Join APA Los Angeles for an exciting and inspiring conversation with some of Los Angeles' foremost female leaders in planning and civic technology. This discussion will be followed by an opportunity to ask questions and network with other attendees. This event is designed to provide a learning opportunity for younger women and men in the planning field, by presenting a panel of experienced female planning leaders. This supports career development and growth. The four panelists each have 15+ years in the field of planning or in planning-related fields like civic technology. They are equipped to lead a career-development conversation for planners with appropriate depth and detail to meet the needs of typical AICP members. The guided conversation questions will unpack lessons for planners with about 5 years of career experience. Participants will benefit from both from subject matter expertise as well as from story-telling and experience-sharing, particularly for under-represented groups such as women in leadership or management positions in the planning field. This is a chance to build capacity and understanding of career progress to encourage more women to seek higher management and leadership positions in the field.
