Diversity Initiatives Group (DIG)
The Diversity Intitiatives Group (DIG) is a community of Graduate Center for Planning and the Environment (GCPE) students, faculty, and staff working for more just and equitable cities through the deeper integration and understanding of diversity issues in urban planning–both in the GCPE curriculum/community and sustainable development professions. Planners in the urban development field often do not reflect the diversity of people nor complex realities in neighborhoods that they serve, presenting implications for historically marginalized communities. DIG recognizes the importance of both reversing this trend and personal deepening reflection on diversity, privilege, and power as a necessary means to dismantling systemic inequalities bounded in the urban fabric.
