Effective organizations strengthen their leadership, develop powerful strategies, apply an equity lens to their work, and evaluate, learn, and improve their strategies and efforts. We treat every organization as a living system and work to integrate inclusive and equitable practices into every part because they are interconnected. We also know that organizations are made up of people, and their relationships with one another—and expectations of each other—are foundational. As part of our approach, we assess the state of these relationships and expectations and help organizations develop solutions that will lead to a more inclusive and equitable environment. We also recognize that every organization is part of an ecosystem—a complex web of organizations that interact with one another, affecting the communities and constituencies they serve individually and collectively. Our methodology to building effective organizations examines this ecosystem to ensure that the organization develops strategies that are aligned and integrated with its environment.
