Helping organizations integrate measurable impact into decision making.

Impact Strategy

For businesses and organizations today, creating a positive social impact is directly tied to sustainability and growth. But how can organizations transition their business strategy to prioritize social good and fully account for the resources they are applying toward impact?

Our impact measurement and strategy team helps organizations identify a strategic approach to achieve your impact vision. 

Our solution

Using data science as a key tool, we help organizations create impact measurement evaluation and reporting frameworks, develop impact strategies, and design evidence-based and impact-centered policies and programming. Working with our storytelling team, we develop strategies to tell your impact story in an engaging and human-centered way.
