Economic Inclusion and Community Engagement

Building stronger communitites goes beyond constructing spaces where people live and work. It's about being a good neighbor to those living and working in our communities. The Oswald team works closely with clients on a collaborative Community Engagement Plan to support a client's inclusion goals.
