WSP's Judith Onuh, a technically skilled WSP Principal Planner in its Infrastructure Planning team, is included in The Planner magazine's 2022 Women of Influence list.

Published every year for International Women's Day, those recognised were nominated by the readers of The Planner and assessed by a panel of judges that includes distinguished planners from across the UK. 

Celebrating the impact of women on planning 

Non ranked and non competitive, the aim of the list is to celebrate the impact of women on planning and planners. As such, some women are on the list because they've had a significant influence on national planning policy while others are included because they've inspired the planners who work with them.

This year's list features 50 women whose nominations The Planner felt met the criteria it was looking for, and who illustrate the breadth and depth of women who are having an influence on planning and planners across sectors and disciplines.

“Judith is truly a women of influence in the planning sector. She’s is a technically skilled planning professional who has used said skills to assist in progressing and delivering Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs) and large scale infrastructure projects in her current role," notes The Planner. 

Extensive work experience 

"She is an active member of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) through her involvement as an elected member of the General Assembly, which is the scrutiny committee that holds the institute to account. She is also been a member of the institute's Membership and Ethics committee, which leads the work of the RTPI on all forms of professional, technical and non-professional association with the Institute, including classes of membership and the criteria for admission to each class," continues The Planner. 

Judith is an active member of the Commonwealth Association of Planners (CAP) Young Planners Network where she sits on the Research Committee. Judith is also a member of the BAME Planners Network, for which she sits on the Steering Committee and leads the Communications sub committee. Here she champions diversity and inclusivity within the planning profession through assisting with organising the variety of events that the BAME Planners Network host.

Judith was praised for her 'can-do attitude' and always being supportive when working with her fellow colleagues and network committee members. Judith also mentors junior planners through the various networks she is involved in to ensure that her experience and expertise are passed on.

"She’s an inspiration and such a lovely person to work with too and a true asset to the profession," Planning Magazine concludes.
