Planning In Color

Planning in Color is a member organization for planners of color consisting of professionals across the planning space. The organization was established in 2018, bringing together a group of planners of color passionate about driving positive social change within the planning profession and the communities in which planning serves. In the last three years, they have grown to a network of over 50 members that operate in the public, private, and non-profit sectors across a range of planning fields and allied disciplines, including architecture, urban design, transportation, housing, education, public policy, and engineering.

Planning in Color envisions an equitable future for communities that have been disproportionately impacted by planning policies and practices. Their mission is to create a platform for planners of colors to tackle these disparities in areas of the field that traditionally have not been inclusive and diverse.
