The Planner has listed its Women of Influence for 2020. Every year for International Women's Day, the Planner publishes a list of planning's Women of Influence, as nominated by the readers of The Planner and assessed by a panel of judges that includes distinguished planners from across the UK. Martha has been nominated this year.

She sees solutions where others see problems but crucially she fosters a real spirit of collaboration throughout the team which allows people to mobilise around her towards a common goal."
