Engagement & Consultation
In our stakeholder and community engagement, the Dept prioritizes collaboration, transparency and a deepened understanding of the issues at hand, so people can offer informed opinion and make mindful decisions. Through a commitment to openness and clear communication, we aim to cultivate mutual respect and understanding.
“A lot of the polarization we see in our communities comes from a lack of well-written, concise information. When people have the same data and analysis to work with, the gap in mutual respect and understanding narrows considerably.”
