In exciting new news for Auckland, an emerging new group called Women in Urbanism has been formed. We are passionate about cities and ensuring they meet the needs of women as well as our most vulnerable.
We have two major aims
1. Encouraging more women to consider careers in Urbanism such as transport planning.
2. Encouraging quality Urban Design outcomes that meet the needs of women and our most vulnerable people.
We hosted our first successful event in June, with a high turnout. The Women in Urbanism Facebook group now has over 187 members, and the Twitter account started last week already has over 143 followers. You can join the Facebook group here, and follow us on Twitter here.
Our next event is a conversation with Julie Anne Genter, who will focus on her career and how better urban outcomes for women can benefit all New Zealanders. The event is set for July 20th, and is sponsored by Boffa Miskell and MRCagney.
This is a limited space event so please register here.
