Join the APA NY Metro Chapter for a dialogue centered around the ways the planning community can support and encourage new and smaller firms to flourish, including MWDBE firms. The New York City planning and urban design industry benefits from having a diverse community of firms and professionals offering unique services. With the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, emerging firms are facing new challenges but also opportunities for more adaptive and creative strategy making for our cities. This panel will bring together representatives from emerging firms to discuss the challenges and opportunities for emerging firms in the New York City region.
