Have you ever wondered how someone became such a successful and effective planner? What advice they could provide about civic engagement? What projects are they are most proud of and why? APAPASE’s “Inside the Planner’s Studio” series asks these questions and more.

We’re honored to have Eleanor Sharpe, Deputy Director for Philadelphia’s Department of Planning and Zoning and the Executive Director for the Philadelphia City Planning Commission as our 5th speaker in the series. Karen Thompson of the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation will be asking Ms. Sharpe about her career, civic engagement, and her advice for planners.

Karen will skip the small talk and ask Ms. Sharpe the big questions: What pivotal moments have shaped her career? If she could go back, would she do anything differently? You’ll have to come to find out!

  • 5:45-6:15: The event will begin with networking. Light hors d’oeuvres will be provided.
  • 6:15-7:00: The Inside the Planner’s Studio program will take place.
  • 7:00-7:15: Ms. Sharpe will take questions from the audience.
  • 7:15-7:45: There will be additional time to network after the event.
