Like cambium supports the growth of a new tree ring each year indicating patterns of growth, change & structure in a tree; our work centers around creating a package of services that is uniquely shaped to your organization’s goals & needs.
EQUITABLE COMMUNITY PLANNING
Our community planning approach includes conducting robust assessments using a variety of adaptable tools to understand the unique needs, barriers, challenges, assets, and opportunities of your community. We specialize in conducting community engagement that centers people whose voices have not been present in planning efforts and we are highly experienced in working with and in communities of color, low-income, LGBTQ+, immigrant, refugee and multilingual, rural and urban communities. We develop recommendations that address root causes of inequity, seek to build real and lasting change and stimulate action, collaboration, and implementation. Our focus areas include food systems, climate change, community revitalization, and neighborhood & economic development.
The places that we work are not only where we go each day to make a living, but they can be places where we do work that we are passionate about, build skills, create community, and transform power structures to be more equitable. Often, a fast-paced, deliverable, and financially focused work culture can take priority over the way that we work together. Cambium can help your organization transform itself to create a culture of anti-racism, shared power & leadership, and a place where everyone can be their full selves. Our services include:
