Updated: Jul 25, 2022

The APA-IL Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Committee is hosting a happy hour! Network with other APA-IL Planners of Color in a relaxed, after-work virtual chat. Members, it's time to grab your beverage of choice, sit back, and get social!

On June 22nd, we'll honor Juneteenth by welcoming the new DEI Committee Chair, Gabe Guevara, and honor the achievements of Black planners starting with our own APA-IL President, Nina Idemudia, AICP. We will welcome any other Black planners the opportunity to share their achievements as well. This is a great chance to learn a little about each other and how YOU can get involved with the DEI Committee.

DATE: Wednesday, June 22, 2022

TIME: 5:30 - 6:30 PM


The APA-IL Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee is delighted to be able to provide this opportunity, helping to fulfill it's mission to provide ongoing education forums and opportunities for planners, students and university faculty of different backgrounds to network, share ideas and bring recognition to unique values and perspectives.

Grab a beverage and something to munch, sit down at your computer or call in, and join your fellow planners online for an hour of conversation and camaraderie.
