Urban planning practices have historically planned for a heterogeneous public in processes that marginalize difference. Gender-inclusive planning recognizes that gender plays a significant role in the urban public realm without privileging any one gender identity over another. To update and improve upon traditional planning practice, gender-inclusive planning addresses the diversity of experiences among people of all gender identities in the enactment of land use, zoning, housing, transportation, urban design, and policy recommendations that affect the built environment.
Please join us for a workshop in which we will discuss and brainstorm planning, policy, and design interventions to elevate LGBTQ safety in the urban public realm. As members of the planning and design community, your personal and professional insight would be extremely important to our work and would help us develop better policies and interventions to serve the LGBTQ community and New York City as a whole.
Light refreshments will be provided.
RSVP for this free event here.
Workshop co-sponsored by Hunter College's Graduate Urban Affairs and Planning Association (GUAPA).
