WEBINAR: Equity in Policy and Practice

11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

The first American Planning Association Policy Guide to exclusively address equity, The Planning for Equity Policy Guide, was ratified by the Board of Directors and adopted by the organization 2019. The guide offers a broad look at the policies and approaches needed for planners, policymakers and allied professionals to advance social equity and justice across all planning efforts. The guide offers direction in key equity planning areas, including gentrification, community engagement, and environmental justice. These are factors that should be part of all planning areas and efforts in order to successfully apply an equity lens. Planning efforts are increasingly focusing on the need to acknowledge historic discriminatory practices; consider the impacts of plans on all community members; and plan for the future using tools and practices to address inequities. One such effort is the recently completed Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan that was approached with equity at the forefront and completed using equitable principles of stakeholder outreach. Join us for an overview of putting the Planning for Equity Policy Guide to use followed by a focused presentation on the Charlotte, NC comprehensive plan, which uses an equity in all policies and practices approach.
