If the 21st century finds women more empowered and more fairly integrated into the economy than ever before, it still presents them with unique challenges in education, employment, healthcare, and safety. The vulnerability of girls, especially those in at-risk populations, remains a complex issue even as our society gives genuine focus to their specific needs. We specialize in giving a voice to the concerns most relevant to women and girls.
Has any sector of the American economy—and of public concern—transformed more than healthcare? The tensions, confusions, aspirations and pragmatics of this landscape are shaped by never-ending negotiations between government, business and nonprofits in an effort to deliver the best solutions possible in evolving healthcare policies and priorities. As the paradigm shifts to wellness-based models over fee-for-service and as communities take ownership of their healthcare challenges, we have been right there—learning alongside our clients and creating smart, candid, and reassuring ways to communicate with their audiences.
Everybody is quick and passionate to declare the ultimate and unparalleled importance of education. But there are as many philosophies, strategies, curricula, challenges, and focus areas in education as there are communities across the nation. For both broad social issues in education as well as for individual schools—from pre-K to college—we know the terrain that all the major players in education must navigate, and we’re ready to provide effective messaging that speaks convincingly to them all.
When you ask what your community needs to be better, healthier, stronger, and more just, get ready to hear a wave of spirited ideas. Maybe even an argument or two. That’s how it should be with something as important as where and how you live. We know that people engaging with their community is good for everyone—and we also know it is hard work that never stops. That’s why we focus on helping community agents get the word out in ways that get their audiences motivated to act.
Let’s be honest. Can we just start there? Honesty. This is how we approach our understanding of and attention to the crucial and sometimes misunderstood issues of diversity and inclusion. We don’t focus here to be politically correct, and we don’t shrink from difficult conversations. We simply believe that a variety of human experiences, perspectives, abilities, and ambitions is always the best way to create and sustain the best of what we do as people in an interdependent world.
