Throughout her 30 years in the planning profession, Jeanette Dinwiddie-Moore has been a tireless, committed, and passionate advocate for good community planning, particularly for the disenfranchised and communities of color whose needs are too often neither heard nor considered. She has effectively advocated for improvements within the profession to ensure that the planning decision making process is inclusive of those individuals and their needs. The first seven years of Ms. Dinwiddie-Moore's professional career were spent working for non-profit corporations and the City of Berkeley on housing and community development programs. She has also served as a mentor and advisor to many planners of color, is the primary author of California’s Membership Inclusion Plan, has served on the APACA Board for over six years (including the position of Vice President of Administration), and is well known in California and nationally for her strong advocacy on diversity issues. She has been Principal and owner of Dinwiddie and Associates since 1981.
