cohort learning & capacity building

Nonprofit organizations are under-resourced, operating with one – or no communication staff. 

Building capacity in communications enables organizations to engage with external stakeholders, partners, and the public; convey messages, build relationships, and address concerns.

Building skilled communications practitioners, equipped with necessary competencies and resources is one of our mandates.

We offer team, cohort style, and one-to-one comms specific consulting on a sliding scale, allowing us to provide equity centered capacity building to frontline/grassroots organizations and leaders as well as funders and foundations alike. These partnerships take the form of retreats, workshops and coaching.

We offer our expertise in the following areas:

    • leadership
    • professional development
    • communications capacity building
