Women in Planning Launch Advisory Board

The network, Women in Planning, has today launched a new Advisory Board. The Boards aim is to support and advise on the network’s future, with a focus on strategic direction and business planning for the next 5 years.

“We are now a UK wide organisation with 14 branches, supporting women working in planning through the promotion of diversity, inclusion and equality within the profession and wider industry. We consider that now is the right time for us to consider how best to take forward the network. To do this, we wanted to bring in skills from across the sector to ensure that the Advisory Board includes industry experts whose collective experience ensures Women in Planning has the guidance to develop into the future.
We look forward to drawing on the expertise of our new Advisory Board to help shape the future of the network.”
