Nonprofit and Social Impact

Nonprofit Expertise

We partner with a broad range of mission-driven clients to identify and recruit exceptional leaders.

Arts and Culture

We have extensive experience partnering with leading arts and cultural organizations, including art museums, science museums, performing arts organizations, local arts centers, botanical gardens, historic homes and architecture, associations advancing the arts, and the funders that support this work. Our arts and cultural experts have experience working with institutions across the country and a highly relevant network of candidates who are equipped to lead through the challenges these organizations face today and into the future.

Environment and Conservation

We partner with a wide variety of environmental and conservation organizations, from national and global advocates working to address climate change to local conservation organizations.

We have recruited national and global leaders in environmental and conservation science and policy, advocacy, natural resource and wildlife protection, climate and energy, and other sectors.

Foundations and Philanthropy

We have a deep track record of partnering with clients active in philanthropy and foundations. We have worked with a range of public, private, and family foundations to recruit CEOs, Presidents and other senior leaders.

Through this work, we have developed a nuanced understanding of the opportunities and challenges of working with these clients and are able to design strategies that reflect each foundation’s unique culture, needs, and philanthropic goals.


Given today’s global context of both extraordinary challenge and opportunity, we understand the need to identify global leaders who can think and act strategically, effectively communicate across geographical and interpersonal borders, and develop innovative solutions to the world’s greatest problems.

Our clients include international NGOs, development finance and impact investing organizations, and foundations based in the U.S. and around the world that work to address issues such as human rights, food and water security, environmental well-being, refugee support, and international development.

Social Justice and Advocacy

We are passionate about maintaining and growing a deep network of leaders who are fighting for racial and gender justice, reproductive rights, criminal justice, LGBTQ rights, voting rights, immigrant rights, gun control, and other issues. Our work in these areas spans from placing leaders in the world of progressive philanthropy to placing activists on the frontline and senior leaders who ensure these organizations are operating for maximum impact.

Social Impact Companies

As an extension of our work with nonprofit organizations, we have partnered extensively with companies doing social good and/or seeking to increase their social impact. Our overlapping expertise in the environmental, social justice, philanthropic and other sectors is a benefit to these mission-driven organizations.

Social Services

We have extensive experience working in the Social Services sector, including with clients addressing homelessness and poverty, hunger, nutrition and food insecurity, accessibility, health equity, and funders of these initiatives to identify transformational leaders across a spectrum of roles and functional areas.

Women and Girls

As a woman-founded and majority female firm, we have a particularly deep and personal commitment to the issues affecting women and girls in the U.S. and globally and share a vision of a world in which women and girls have equal access, rights, and opportunity.

Youth Development and Educational Equity Advocacy

We have had the privilege of partnering with hundreds of organizations focused on youth development, early childhood education, educational equity and reform, education technology, college readiness, and workforce development, along with dozens of foundations that fund these initiatives.
