In an effort to design safer environments for women, WISE collaborates with city planners, architects and local engineering firms. See here an example of WISE’S contribution during the time of design. WISE reminds planners that it is more prudent to take women’s safety concerns into account at the time of design rather than to have to retrofit a space.    If you are considering a capital project or renovation of a neighbourhood, please call WISE to consult with us on womens’ safety concerns.
