Volunteering for Clean Days on the Greenway - Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee (DEIC) provides awareness of and support for the advancement employees from historically disadvantaged groups at Fuss & O’Neill. It also serves to advance a culture that makes Fuss & O’Neill a best place to work.
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee was formed to be proactive; our intention is to make Fuss & O’Neill a best place to work for all employees, while cultivating awareness of the challenges for historically disadvantaged employees. Our formation in 2018 as the Gender Equity and Leadership Committee was rooted in the national dialogue surrounding gender equity. However, our intention from the outset has been to build a foundation of equity work that would foster parity for all historically disadvantaged employees. In 2020, with the national dialogue surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement, the Committee decided to update our mission to clearly declare that it is integral to our company culture to actively create an equitable culture for all employees.
Fuss & O’Neill’s Active Design Group was formed to collaborate, provide thought leadership, and explore new ways of designing for non-vehicular transportation. “Active Design” refers to any mode of transportation that requires the body’s exertion: walking, running, cycling, skating, etc. The Active Design Group meets quarterly to review current projects, share new ideas, develop new skills, and learn about current trends in non-auto-centric transit.
To design safe, inclusive transportation spaces.
We shall be advocates for, and creators of: shared roadway space, alternative pathways, and equitable access.
