How we work
Social Impact Advisors works with social benefit organizations* across Canada, who are looking to clarify their impact and develop a strategy for meaningful change. We tailor our work to fit your needs, timeline, and budget. Together we help your team build practical actionable plans, measure your achievements, and implement your strategies.
*primarily charities, foundations, nonprofits, and cross-sector collaboratives or Collectives
We coach you through a strategic process, ensuring your wisdom and ideas are centred toward strengthening your ability to have tough, meaningful team discussions to diagnose key issues and build shared ownership of solutions.
We won’t hand you a solution, but will collaborate with you in gathering data, developing options, sharing examples from your sector and beyond, and documenting solutions supported by all of your stakeholders.
We bring a structured and interactive approach, ensuring all voices are heard and sessions are productive. We design for engagement, focused on impact, whether in virtual or in-person sessions.
Because we don’t just hand you a solution, we teach concepts and share knowledge to guide you through each part of the process, building your capacity to do the work at hand, and beyond.
