gender Inclusive planning

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.
