WELCOME to Women in Planning + Development

For over twenty-five years, WP+D has provided opportunities for connection and professional growth to women at all stages of their career in urban planning, development, and related fields. Our members work in government, private, and non-profit sectors across a wide range of fields including transportation, real estate, municipal planning, public policy, construction and design, community development financing, and more!

Check out our calendar for more information on upcoming events! We offer monthly small networking lunches and happy hours, professional development panels and workshops, an annual holiday party, and a member appreciation picnic.

If you’re new to WP+D, we invite you to engage with other women at one of our monthly networking events.

For over 25 years, WP+D has been creating spaces for women to come together in honest dialogue to discuss the challenges we face and to celebrate our accomplishments. Members enjoy access to a range of networking and professional development opportunities, as well as our curated job listings.
