Female planners only comprise of 22% of the FAICP College of Fellows membership within APA. While there is a gradual increase in the number of female nominations and inductees throughout recent years, the current gender disparity of membership is alarming. The AICP College of Fellows program, which began in 1998 to “recognize planners whose career exhibits excellence,” is regarded as the highest honor the AICP bestows upon a member. Join the APA Women & Planning Division for a lively discussion highlighting the importance of supporting, amplifying, and inducting more influential women planners into the FAICP class. A panel of distinguished women planners will discuss the importance of FAICP, the rigorous nominations process, the importance of nominating women, will share their own experiences in creating submissions as well as what the experience was like to be inducted into the College of Fellows. Panelists will provide key insights to strong nominations, when in your career to consider applying and the importance of telling a strong story in the nominations application.
