Social Impact

Providing sophisticated advice and counsel to some of the world’s most impactful institutions.

Acquiring effective leadership for non-profit, social enterprise, education, and other social impact sectors has never been more critical. As more organizations consider their impact on global and local communities, and roles in corporate philanthropy and social responsibility proliferate, it’s important to understand what leadership capabilities and experience matter for success.

It’s also important to understand that emerging and innovative technologies, along with the creation and expansion of these sectors, requires aggressive, strategic organizational leadership paired with strong financial acumen.

Our clients tell us they appreciate the sophistication with which we provide our counsel on these and related matters, and the creativity we apply to attracting and securing dynamic leaders for their organizations both from within their sectors and from relevant alternative sources.

We take pride in knowing that our clients, some of the world’s most impactful institutions whose missions are important to our society and culture, trust us to identify dynamic leaders to guide and often transform their organizations.

Leading Social Impact Organizations We recently talked with four senior executives about career paths and crucial skills for leaders in corporate social responsibility and philanthropy. In Leading Social Impact Organizations, we share insights from that conversation and offer our perspective on helping nonprofit, social enterprise, and educational institutions find the leaders they need to accomplish their missions.
