We are adept at applying our research and strategy know-how to companies and nonprofits of all shapes and sizes, in
every corner of the globe. What's more, you can be sure that you're paying for talent, not overhead. We maintain a lean & cost-effective operating model, tapping into our brilliant network of social impact consultants and advisors when we require additional expertise.
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.
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.
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.
We think it's important to try new things, and encourage everyone to take chances. We are thinkers, researchers, and askers of (many) questions.
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.
Each year, we give 5% of profits to causes that roar against injustice when others have whispered.
As a team, we take on one pro bono project each year, and as individuals, we commit to one volunteer activity per quarter.
The end outcome of every client engagement is measurable impact.
As a proud woman-owned company, we actively work to foster diversity in the workplace.
Our team members report weekly on their acts of kindness.
The first minute of our meetings is set aside to clear our minds and center ourselves.
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.
