For more than 30 years, we have partnered with those working on complex, often messy social issues – such as improving access to education, addressing health disparities, and revitalizing neighborhoods – to help create more powerful, enduring systems change. Whether it’s improving access to college education and careers, expanding access to healthy foods, or building opportunities for financial empowerment, we help our clients make communities stronger, healthier, more equitable, and more inclusive.
But we want to go further. We want to have a more direct impact with our clients, aligned with issues that we care deeply about. And we want our work to translate clearly into the enduring program, policy, and systems changes that our clients seek. As such, we have repackaged our services – with more bundled, customized offerings and supports – to strengthen our understanding of our clients’ organizational practices, and deepen our partnerships with them in an ongoing journey.
We are program designers and evaluators; capacity builders and technical assistance providers; and communications professionals who know the value of narrative change. We balance passion with pragmatism, thought leadership with self-reflection and humility, and rigor with flexibility. And we are committed to upholding diversity, equity, and inclusion inside our organization, across our five customized service lines and in every engagement. In our ongoing journey with clients, we draw on our organizational values, as well as our staff’s diverse skills and interdisciplinary experience, to ensure the best approach.
That’s how we make our clients’ good work even better.
