Pathways to Equity is honored to be a recipient of the Award for Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion for our work with West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project! Our collaboration has been acknowledged for its equity-focused process, addressing how the land use development process can create equity, where it has previously created disparity, in the most marginalized communities.

Why We Do This Work

We recognize that our built environment is inherently inequitable and has unfairly impacted under-resourced communities.


We acknowledge that industries that shape the built environment have contributed to systems of inequity.


We pledge to interrogate our historical context, leverage our skills, power and privilege, and to minimize harm. 

Applications are open for the Spring 2024,10 week P2E Online Course. Learn more here.
