Our Impact


Our role in social change is to partner with leaders to develop themselves and others, to guide organizational strategy and capacity building, and to share knowledge and perspective with our colleagues across the field. Through our stance, values, and strategies (outlined in our theory of change), we work toward: 


Powerful Leaders
Leaders with skill and passion who know their own strengths and build on the strengths of others to align around a compelling vision.



Strong Organizations
Organizations and networks that are exceedingly relevant and have the capacity and resources to create real change.
