From the call to action from communities to the Executive Order on Advancing Racial Equity, public agencies face the opportunity and challenge to develop or grow their commitment to equitable decision-making to ensure public projects help the historically underserved to thrive.
This transformation requires will, education and resources. We guide clients with frameworks, toolkits and policies that integrate equity into staff training, project prioritization, data tools, public engagement, contracting and procurement and more. Business transformation helps clients meet goals like building public trust, optimizing funding, and measuring impact.
WSP expertise helps clients make efficient and effective investments in communities and infrastructure that improves access, livability, resiliency, safety and public health starting where it is needed most. Developing organizational standards of equity in partnership with your leadership champions sets an example for staff that translates to individual projects.
