I need a word that essentially means I'm going to try my best, but sounds a bit more optimistic. Here's the sentence for context: I hope to make universal design the standard practice and _____ no person feels excluded from an activity, commodity, or opportunity due to a lack of representative design.

The word promote is less absolute than ensure, but it won't fit your sentence. What would make your sentence make sense would be to drop the and and insert so that.
The lesser level of certainty will be carried over from the earlier phrase hope to make.

I hope to make universal design the standard practice so that no person feels excluded from an activity, commodity, or opportunity due to a lack of representative design.
