We know that the communities and cities of the future will be diverse – encompassing a variety of family structures, ethnic backgrounds and religious beliefs. In order to do good work, Sweco needs to understand and meet diverse needs and perspectives as we plan and design future communities and cities. Sweco’s organisation needs to reflect the society we live in today, but also understand the foundations of tomorrow’s society. In addition to academic expertise, Sweco’s employees need to understand the people who will be living in the communities we, as experts, are involved in planning and designing. This requires diversity.
