Family Firms and Social Responsibility

An integrated strategic approach to impact through business, community and philanthropy

 

The pandemic continues to wreak havoc and our awareness of systemic injustice has increased dramatically. Everyone is talking about what business can do to make a difference. You can make 2021 the year of planning for a sustained response. We work with family firms on updating a legacy to proudly reflect their values and vision. Through an integrated approach to philanthropy, investment and key business decisions you can have the impact you desire and achieve genuine distinction for your family and business. Delay is costing you much more than the help you need ever will. Let’s make a plan together and start the shift to a culture of action on social responsibility.

Younger members of our families are asking hard questions.

Your employees, partner organizations and the causes you have long supported are using new language and expressing new expectations. Younger family members are asking hard questions about how the family business connects to the changing world around you. What was long called “giving back” and “doing our part” doesn’t feel like enough anymore. Family firms need a clear strategy that ties together your shared commitments to business, philanthropy, and community and centers it all around the impact you want to have. We help you make it clearer than ever what you stand for and bring your family and your business together in the process.

What We Offer

The Workshop

A facilitated dialogue with your key stakeholders to take stock of the moment and come out with greater clarity about your shared commitment to the values and vision that define you.

Making the Plan

Turn your values and vision into a plan for action and impact. Identify the opportunities in your philanthropy, business and community life to be more intentional and meet the moment.

A Year of Action

Let us help you put the plan into action, making the introductions to new relationships, curating new experiences and creating new opportunities that can transform your trajectory as a family and an organization.

Coaching

Sometimes the next generation needs help preparing for leadership or the older generation needs a guiding hand as the world continues to change at a frenetic pace. Thought partner. Motivator. Skills developer: What you need, we provide.

Family Businesses and Offices:

Integrated Effort, Sharper Focus, Greater Impact

Updating a legacy to reflect your values and your vision

As a new year begins, you may have a deep sense that you can be more effective as a family and a business in doing your part for a broken world. You reacted responsibly in 2020 as the pandemic wreaked havoc and awareness of racial injustice increased. And you have the chance now to make 2021 the year of planning for sustained impact. It shouldn’t be so complicated and yet there are many people and pieces that need to be aligned to get it done. Delay is costing you much more than the help you need ever will. Let’s do it together.

 

Through an integrated approach to philanthropy, investment and some key business decisions you can achieve impact for the world around you and distinction for your family and business as an example for others to follow.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

 

The urgency of making a demonstrably effective commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is very real. The advantage you can gain for your organization and your employees – and the impact you can have by doing it right is very real as well.  And you cannot spell ESG or CSR without DEI so if your investor relations teams and corporate citizenship teams are operating in separate silos from your diversity work, it’s time for that to end. Our approach is about overall excellence. It is about fresh insight, new connections and an entirely integrated toolkit that pulls together your entire organization. Our diverse network of expert partners brings a wide span of  lived experience and distinguished professional experience. We help you to achieve impact, distinction and advantage.
