EmpowHer: Women Leaders in Planning
The Student Planning Organization alongside the Planners Network chapter of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites you to participate in this round-table discussion to observe and honor Women’s History Month. We’re excited to share this forum with students across the department and the university as a space for reflection and guidance. The invited panelists will speak on their experiences within the professional planning field, their activist work, and academia through guided questions, followed by an open discussion with participants.
