Equity is when everyone, regardless of who they are or where they come from, has the opportunity to thrive.

Our company mission

About Equity Policy Solutions

We help our clients apply an equity framework to community development policies, plans, and projects to build healthy, equitable and thriving communities. An equity framework acknowledges that historic policymaking decisions in land use, housing, transportation and the built environment resulted in disproportionate barriers to opportunity for certain groups of people. We apply research, stakeholder engagement and evidence-based best practices to dismantle barriers and expand access to opportunity and prosperity.

Samantha Suter, Owner, Metta Urban Design

Gretchen has been a pioneering force in equitable planning and development for years, especially as it relates to health and the built environment. Her ability to ‘connect the dots’ between how land use policies impact health and equity outcomes has added immense value to our work together.


Gretchen is a joy to work with and she is at ease working with a range of public and private stakeholders to advance equitable development. I am proud of the work we’ve done together over the years and look forward to future collaborations.
