Kristin Agnello

Chair of the Commonwealth Women in Planning Network

This year, Kristin Agnello was appointed Chair of the Commonwealth Women in Planning Network, a subsidiary committee of the The Commonwealth Association of Planners, which seeks to focus and develop the skills of urban and regional planners across the Commonwealth to meet the challenges of urbanisation and the sustainable development of human settlements. An industry many of us take for granted, Kristin hopes to elevate the role women play in designing our cities and communities. But for Kristin, the best is yet to come for her career: in October 2018, she will present a manifesto for gender equality in planning to be ratified by planning professionals from across the Commonwealth. She is also organizing a global mentoring program for female planners and developing partnerships with UN Women, Women in Cities International, Women Transforming Cities, and other international organizations.
