Diversity in Planning: Why It Matters

February 15 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Free – $10

The city planning profession has traditionally failed to reflect the diversity of the residents of the places it plans. While enrollment in city planning programs across the country indicates that those patterns are changing, it’s still important to reflect on why diversity in the profession is important and how it impacts our cities. Whose voice is being heard? Where are ideas coming from? Who has the power to plan communities? Come dive into this important topic with SPUR.

Panel: 

  • Councilmember Margaret Abe-Koga / Mountain View City Council
  • Rosalynn Hughey / San Jose Department of Planning, Building and Code Enforcement
  • Vu-Bang Nguyen / Silicon Valley Community Foundation
