ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
HR&A is an industry-leading consulting firm that provides strategic advisory services for clients in the public, private, and non-profit sectors, focused on solving the most complex challenges facing cities today. We care about improving the quality of urban life, and we are increasingly focused on the challenges of equitable development, inclusivity, infrastructure, and technological innovation in cities as we advance projects that improve social, economic, and environmental outcomes.
We are former public servants, urban planners, economists, and real estate developers. Our projects win awards due to our ability to integrate disparate disciplines for our clients, and we often lead teams with engineers, architects, lawyers, community organizers, and other specialists.
HR&A is proud to be an employee-owned company, and is committed to building a diverse workforce while centering issues of equity and inclusion in the work that we do. We have recently convened an Anti-Racism Task Force, which will develop internal equity initiatives and improvements to the firm as well as work to craft an industry-wide vision for anti-racism work and dismantling systems of oppression in our field.
