New planners at the beginning of their careers can have a significant impact to the way we think about tough and intriguing issues in the planning field. Join the APA Women & Planning Division for an exciting and inspiring discussion focused on highlighting Division student members from planning programs from across the country and internationally! A panel of recent graduate and early career planners will discuss their research and project work, focused on equity, infrastructure and mobility constraints, environmental issues, and transportation barriers, and will share their own experiences and stories. See how each has found interesting ways to make their mark on the planning profession, and learn about the topics of most concern and interest to the next generation of planners. This moderated panel will allow the audience to participate through live polling and interactive questions.
