Our bottom line is people. Strategies that put people first require a very different approach than traditional business models, and lessons from private industry can only take us so far. We focus on the inherent strengths of organizations committed to doing good in the world, and help them establish sustainable structures to maximize their impact. We combine established tools from the public, private, and non profit sectors, emerging best practices, and our own expertise to tailor plans that empower our clients to do good, better.
- Emerging leaders in the social impact sector will have the tools to and resources to lead sustainable, mission oriented programs
- Workplaces will support the professional development, wellness and longevity of balanced, effective, and empowered teams
- Services will be more accessible and supportive to those that need them most
- We create clear, individualized strategies to tackle complex and challenging organizational leadership challenges through training, coaching and facilitated group processes
- We develop organizational structures and personnel supports to promote workplace efficiency, resilience, and wellness
- We design person-centered programs and effective implementation strategies
We focus on non-profit, philanthropic, and government organizations at the local, state and national level. We have particular expertise in the San Francisco Bay Area and the state of California.
We are an anti-racist, feminist organization that supports equal rights and freedoms for all and celebrates the many values that diversity brings to our society as a whole, and the social impact sector in particular. As people of privilege in many regards, we recognize the importance of consciously reflecting on and actively engaging with the ways in which systemic oppression plays out in our work and in the systems in which we work. We are committed to furthering diversity, equity, and inclusion in our work and in our partnerships, but do not strive to take an expert’s position on these topics, preferring to make space for and honor the unique expertise of colleagues from under-represented demographics whose work centers in this area. We make referrals to such colleagues in our network as needed for our clients, and seek consultation ourselves when engaging in difficult work, striving to model to our clients that this work is both important and urgent, and, necessarily, an ongoing process.
