Planning magazine reports that the celebration of International Women's Day offered an ideal opportunity to recognise the role of women in planning by compiling a list of the most influential women currently working in the sector. They assembled an initial list of names compiled using a mix of desk research and consultation with those active in the profession.
POS has noted that four of its members with key roles in the Society feature in the list:
