Triangle’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

v. May 2023

Our Mission is to foster equitable and informed environmental decision-making. We know that systems of oppression can prevent equitable and informed decision-making from happening. As such, we aim to integrate our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts into all aspects of our work. We know that we cannot do this work externally without internally building a foundation of equity and inclusion. With this basis of internal DEI efforts, Triangle has a unique opportunity and platform with access to government, private companies, non-profits and can support these institutions’ progress in racial and social justice.


Triangle commits to being an anti-racist organization. We will provide opportunities and platforms for our staff, clients, and community partners to be seen and heard and have their voices amplified. Specifically, WE ARE COMMITTED TO:

  • Acknowledging our role as leaders and how as a historically white-led company we still have much to learn, will make mistakes, and must be accountable to do the work of leaning into our discomfort.
  • Examining white privilege and evaluating our internal practices to foster an inclusive and equitable culture, that increases the diversity among our organization’s staff, leadership, and ownership.
  • Centering racial equity in our decision making, continuing to deepen this in both the educational programs that we bring to our school communities and in the facilitation and public involvement work that we do with our adult stakeholders.
  • Investing in Black and Brown employees and communities in the fight for racial justice and change.
  • Partnering with minority-owned businesses, to support and strengthen their organizations and leadership.

Triangle Associates Inc. is committed to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion in all our services and organizational culture, and to providing equitable opportunities for professional growth. This commitment is essential to achieving our company’s vision and mission.
