Women in Planning, mentoring scheme,

Women in Planning is today (8 March 2021) launching a mentoring scheme to coincide with International Women’s Day

Women in Planning leads change in the planning and built environment industry by making women visible, promoting diversity and inclusion, and supporting career development.

This new mentoring scheme enables Women in Planning to meet this objective.

The mentoring scheme aims to bring together individuals who are seeking support and guidance on their career development from more experienced professionals.

The aim is to ‘buddy up’ mentor and mentees with the best fit in the matching process.

Applications are open to all those working within the planning sector, from students through to those working in the boardroom.

Empowering and supporting women

Jessica Herritty, chair of the East Midlands Committee, said: “We are really excited to launch the scheme on International Women’s Day and hope it will provide meaningful connections and support for people in our network over the course of the next year.”

Emma Cartledge-Taylor, chair of the West Midlands Committee, said: “Women in Planning was set up to empower women and support them throughout their careers.

“We are passionate about the scheme and it is fantastic extension of that promise and will contribute to this year’s theme of “Choose to Challenge”.”
