Bringing Action to Collaboration
Connective Impact aids organizations in strategic goal development, partnership creation, consensus building and focused thinking in order to solve some of the most complex problems of our time. This includes developing strategies for broad stakeholder engagement, prioritizing action around individual and joint commitments, determining what is achievable alone and with the right partners and measuring impact.
We link together organizations that have similar, yet lofty goals, to develop programs for action. This includes:
• Convening stakeholder dialogues
• Developing and implementing stakeholder group strategies
• Measuring quantitative impact of group efforts
Connective Impact also provides representation services for clients interested in testing the waters with stakeholder engagement yet unsure where to begin. Our primary location for this service is in the Washington, D.C. area.
We provide a level of comfort by giving individualized attention and working closely with the client as the organization considers its role in a broader social impact dialogue. Linkages and relationships are then made seamlessly and efficiently.
Our clients are those that seek active participation in helping make our planet a healthier, safer and more productive place to live. They are innovators, risk-takers and confident that sustainability is an everyday priority in decision-making.
