Women in Planning are proud to be supporting a new LGBT network Planning Out. One of the founders, Simon Brooksbank, was inspired by our Helen Hayes event earlier this year. We are glad the discussion about diversity, equality and inclusion in the planning profession is infectious!
Planning Out first event is on 28 July, read below for more details about the new network.
Planning Out is an LGBT network for professionals in the planning sector.
Planning Out has two key aims. Firstly it is a forum for professionals in the LGBT community to develop professional connections and friendships, learn best practice and share ideas from colleagues across the industry.
Secondly our aim is to provide a forum to encourage LGBT professionals to be themselves and be authentic in the workplace and in their everyday lives so that they can fulfil their potential.
We welcome all people regardless of seniority, public, private, voluntary or academic sectors as well as those who are supportive of our cause. We also welcome professionals who are connected to the planning industry.
