Planning Out Christmas Drinks


Planning Out held their annual Christmas Drinks on 12th December at the Building Centre. The event was sponsored by BECG for the second year in a row, with attendance from 200 people from across the planning and development sectors.

Stephen Pomeroy, Chief Executive of BECG, spoke about celebrating diversity and the importance of being out in the workplace.

Planning Out is an LGBT network for professionals in the town planning sector. The network has two key aims. Firstly it is a forum for professionals in the LGBT community to develop professional connections and friendships, learn best practice and share ideas from colleagues across the industry. Secondly, Planning Out aims to provide a forum to encourage LGBT professionals to be themselves and be authentic in the workplace and in their everyday lives so that they can fulfill their potential.

We welcome all people regardless of seniority, public, private, voluntary or academic sectors as well as those who are supportive of our cause. We also welcome professionals who are connected to the planning industry.
