EMPSi has provided public outreach and facilitated controversial, fast-tracked, nation-wide projects, as well as programs tailored to rural, tribal, and minority communities

EMPSi recognizes that projects are most successful when they result in mutually beneficial outcomes for our clients, regulators, stakeholders, and the public. With that in mind, we plan and implement public engagement programs tailored to meet the needs of each project and its unique environment. Our outreach considers language needs, local or tribal customs, and other considerations, while maximizing the effectiveness of these communications and our broad engagement techniques.
