We have always believed that planning and design are powerful tools to help communities make purposeful, positive change. This year brought us plenty of it. And while change is necessary for long overdue and hopefully lasting cultural, environmental, racial and economic justice, we also recognize that some of the hardest parts of 2020 were felt unequally. Women, for instance, experienced a disproportionate amount of pandemic related job loss while also being responsible for 70% of the world’s caregiving hours.
We are grateful to have the chance to reflect on inequality in our work and proud to work alongside clients, communities and collaborators to do our collective part in making change the best possible kind. In this spirit, we close 2020 recognizing that this tough year also broke barriers, shattered glass ceilings, and showed us what inspired leadership, compassion and excellence looks like. Agency celebrates these – and all! – Change Agents who saw 2020 as an opportunity for purposeful change …
We know there are so many more. Let us know about your favorite game changers as we gather ourselves for 2021. May the new year inspire you with many more reasons to bring about positive change!
Agency will be closed December 25th through January 4th. We hope you too have a chance to rest up for the year ahead.
