The PSE Way

PSE's methodology is rooted in a simple, yet powerful belief: Real change happens through intentional action. We are committed to advancing equity by addressing the root causes of racial disparities and promoting shared prosperity for all.

The Fight for Equity


(eq·ui·ty) /ekwədē/
– to create the conditions that enable just and fair inclusion into a society in which all can participate, prosper and reach their full potential


(e·qual·i·ty) /əˈkwälədē/
– regarding or affecting
all objects in the same way

See the difference? While equal rights under the law have afforded many of us opportunities that were denied for so long, an equity agenda works to advance just outcomes that are sensitive to the needs and circumstances of the populations in question – erasing the barriers that stand in the way for everyone to succeed. The reality is there are groups that have much more support systems and resources that enable their success while others are forced to rely on more uncertain circumstances in under-resourced communities. PSE stands to address these inequities in our communities so prosperity can be created and shared by all.

Our Theory of Change

PSE's theory of change is grounded in the pursuit of equity and justice. We believe that true transformation requires a strategic and intentional approach. Our model involves understanding the root causes of inequity, engaging in community-driven initiatives, and collaborating with diverse stakeholders. By actively addressing systemic barriers and amplifying the voices of marginalized communities, we work towards a more just and inclusive future where everyone can thrive.
