Who We Are


SCROLL DOWN

Who We Are


A strategy firm offering bold approaches to better our world. 

we empower innovative business and nonprofit leaders to address social, economic, and environmental issues through research, strategy, planning, and project management.

We're proud to be a Certified B Corporation and a "best for community honoree" in the 2015 "best for nyc" awards.


Over the past 10 months, WhyWhisper has worked with me extensively on designing a brand and impact strategy that allows us the flexibility to grow as a new company. They have helped me curate a unique vision for our company, and through working with them, I have learned how to identify brand values for my venture and use them to guide all internal and external company decisions. In my time working with WhyWhisper, they have gone above and beyond in every possible way. I can't think of more qualified professionals to work with in the early stages of building my business. Thank you, WhyWhisper, for all the milestones you have helped me achieve already, and for giving me the confidence to have confidence in building my own business!
- Founder, Sukoon Active

Our Values


Our Values


Accountability

We hold ourselves accountable to our clients, our fellow freelancers, the environment, and the world at large. We apply critical thought to every aspect of our operations, making changes as we learn and evolve.
 

Positivity

We see opportunities for creating social impact everywhere we look. We understand that this begins by being kind, supportive, and encouraging of one another, so we work with good people on good projects.
 

Purpose

We built WhyWhisper because we wanted to use our skills to make the world a better place. We are intentional about who we work with, what we work on, where and how we work. We know that large-scale positive change starts with the actions of individuals.
 

Learning

We think it's important to try new things, and encourage everyone to take chances. We are thinkers, researchers, and askers of (many) questions.
 

Empowerment

We designed our company to bring opportunity to communities, clients, and consultants alike. We work with our clients to create positive social, economic, and environmental impact; we empower them to continue this work on their own long after our contract is over, and we pride ourselves on being a source of meaningful projects for our talented network of consultants.

Our commitment to social responsibility


Our commitment to social responsibility


Both as a team and as individuals, WhyWhisper leverages its people, profit, and product to better our world. Here's how:

 

We donate. 

Each year, we give 5%  of profits to causes that roar against injustice when others have whispered.
 

We volunteer.

As a team, we take on one pro bono project each year, and as individuals, we commit to one volunteer activity per quarter. 
 

We work with our clients to better the world.

The end outcome of every client engagement is measurable impact.
 

We're committed to diversity.

As a proud woman-owned company, we actively work to foster diversity in the workplace. 
 

We actively promote kindness.

Our team members report weekly on their acts of kindness. 
 

We practice mindfulness.

The first minute of our meetings is set aside to clear our minds and center ourselves. 
 

We're environmentally-friendly.

We avoid printing, but if printed materials are requested, we print double-sided documents on recycled paper with vegetable-based inks.  We work remotely, cutting down on unnecessary emissions. We use reusables during meetings. We responsibly recycle paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, metal, and electronics. When buying products and choosing suppliers, we select them based on their commitment to diversity and sustainability, striving to stay local and support underrepresented populations whenever possible.  We surround ourselves with plants and greenery.
 

We're a Certified B Corporation.

Certified B Corporations meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. And unlike traditional corporations, as a Certified B Corporation, we are legally required to consider the impact of our decisions not only on our shareholders, but also on our stakeholders, including our workers, suppliers, community, consumers, and the environment.
