Event description
The Illinois and Wisconsin Chapters of APA have come together to create a virtual D/E/I training workshop for urban planning practitioners.

About this Event

The Illinois and Wisconsin Chapters of American Planning Association (APA), with the help of an APA’s Chapter Presidents Council’s grant, have come together to create, coordinate, execute, and document a virtual training workshop surrounding diversity, equity and inclusion (D/E/I), called “Upholding Equity in Planning.” The workshop is geared toward planning practitioners in an effort to transform the way planning is done by planning professionals in their day to day work within communities.

The “Upholding Equity in Planning” workshop’s curriculum, created and lead by Castillo Consulting Partners, will acknowledge how institutional racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and white supremacy have created inequitable outcomes for society’s most vulnerable populations and layout how those inequalities directly affect our field of work. The participants will be given real world tactics of how to embed equity into their professional work. The workshop aims to take participants from passive allyship to active accomplices in dismantling oppressive structures and institutions.

Professional development: APA CM Credits are pending

Keynote:

Reggie Jackson is a nationally heralded independent scholar and much sought-after speaker, researcher, writer, and consultant to the media on race relations. He helps institutions and individuals understand how our country’s racial hierarchy developed historically, its impact on our lives today, and how we can realize America’s promise for all its citizens. Reggie shares seldom-told stories and data about the experiences of African-Americans and other peoples of color past and present.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Increase awareness about historical and present day events, policies and practices that have shaped the planning profession and created inequities, fostering disparities in communities, often using planning tools to uphold racism and oppression.
  2. Help participants understand the role that planners can play in addressing historical harms, and actively work against the furthering of systemic biases and oppression through effective community engagement in planning processes.
  3. Give participants practical tools that can be used to uplift community needs and disrupt institutional biases in their workplaces.
