True story. I made a New Year’s Resolution in 2012 that after answering the all-too-familiar greeting, “What kind of work do you do?” I would respond with a different question: “What causes do you support?” The most common response from new acquaintances: a blank stare. Despite exceptional skills, raw talent, unrelenting drive and vast networks, few of these business leaders were leveraging their considerable resources to create stronger social good organizations and, in turn, more vibrant communities – even in the very places they lived.
Out of this experience, Cause Strategy Partners was born — a consulting social enterprise we founded in February 2015 to connect business professionals to causes that resonate with their values and interests, ensuring that they bring the very best of themselves to the organizations they support. One of our accomplishments this year was creating our signature program, BoardLead. The infographic below provides a glimpse into what’s on the horizon for Cause Strategy Partners in 2016.
