OUR WORK

We’re a diverse, talented team of leaders and changemakers who draw on our multitude of experiences and proven strategies to engage, equip, and illuminate. We work with nonprofits, foundations, and enterprises to:

  • Plan—We help organizations identify their north star by listening to all their stakeholders and considering first those directly impacted. We then facilitate equitable decision- making processes across varying roles and power dynamics.
  • Innovate—We work with clients to launch groundbreaking initiatives, pioneer new approaches, and document emerging ideas.
  • Learn—We partner with our clients to create equitable evaluation processes and learning communities that help leaders learn to get better results.
  • Transform—We use our tool, the Equity Footprint, to help organizations transform their internal culture and external impact.

  • Cultivate and maintain a wide network of relationships in client, partner, and community organizations.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

  • Ideally 5 years of progressive leadership experience in a nonprofit or foundation with 2-3 years of experience in consulting (e.g., working for a consulting firm or running a solo practice). Evaluation and DEI chops a plus!
  • A mission-driven passion for social and racial justice work in BIPOC communities.
  • Established relationships with folks in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors, with demonstrated ability to develop and foster new relationships.
  • Deep understanding and analysis of intersectionality and equity and how these play out with clients and communities.
