October marks the opening of APA’s application period for the 2018 Ambassadors Program. This initiative has been created to reach future planners with diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. With recent national events, it is critical for the field of planning to grow more inclusive and diverse to continue to be relevant to communities of color and disadvantaged populations. It is also increasingly important for individual planners to connect to young people in these communities on a personal level to support just decisions and live up to the APA code of ethics.
