Brighid is passionate about inclusive and equitable cities and through her advocacy work she brings a commitment to rethinking the way we currently approach planning. Brighid was named the 2017 Australian Young Planner of the year for her volunteering, advocacy and promotion of the planning profession. Through her work with not-for-profit organisations, universities, local government and the private sector, Brighid is developing an approach to her work that she hopes will see more cross-collaboration between different built-environment disciplines.
