NEW EVENT: Fixing the housing crisis. Is the Housing White Paper the answer?

Join Women in Planning at our first breakfast event on the 11th April in partnership with Dentons.

The much anticipated Housing White Paper was published in February and has been hotly debated ever since, with the Shadow Housing Minister John Healey even calling it “a white flag not a white paper“. What impact will the Housing White Paper have on residential developers, local authorities, housing associations, landowners, and investors?

Join us for breakfast and hear what our distinguished panel have to say about it:

Further panellists to be announced closer to the event.

Booking is recommended and can be done via our Eventbrite page.

Built By Both – Inspire// Network- 17 November 2016

Women in Planning continue to support the brilliant work of this year’s graduate cohort at Barratt Developments PLC. The graduates are fundraising for The Prince’s Trust Million Makers project 2016 via Golden Bricks ( read more here – http://www.barrattgoldenbricks.com/ – it is a brilliant idea!).

One of the projects the graduates have decided to deliver is Built By Both. So what is it? Don’t ask us but read what the graduates say about it:

“Built by Both’s main objective is to inspire young women to embark on careers within the built environment and show credit to those already working in our industry. We aim to promote this initiative via educational experience days for students and networking events for young women to meet inspirational role models. With an emphasis on the current demand for housing in the UK, partnered with a skills shortage and poor representation of women in these roles, we are really excited to inspire the next generation of builders, engineers, architects, planners, developers and more.”

Please do show your support for these graduates by attending the next event:

Date: 17 November 2016

Venue: Aedas, Ivory House, St Katharine Docks, London E1W 1AT

Time: 18:30 – 21:30

Women in Planning supporting new LGBT network – Planning Out

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

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.
