It all began with a conversation — I reconnected with Don Coyner, who led the Xbox team I was on more than 20 years ago. He and several friends from the design world were looking for ways to give back. At the same time, I was talking to several sustainability and social impact colleagues looking to join forces.
Together we formed the Global Impact Collective, a design and strategy consultancy with a vision to use design thinking to help your organization solve global food system, health, and environmental challenges.
We will apply our decades of expertise toward these critical challenges, impacting millions of lives annually. Importantly, we don’t believe we have all the answers. In fact, we know we don’t. But we do believe that the collective and diverse experience of our network enables us to tackle hard and complex problems.
We believe in crafting locally relevant, effective, and enduring solutions through deep engagement, active listening and sustained learning. We also believe in teaching and mentoring the next generation of impact-oriented designers and doers, no matter their background, where they live, or their traditional place in society. We are entering an era of collective design, where anyone can build solutions that are relevant to their own lives.
We want to help you tackle these critical issues, whether you are a mission-driven company, foundation, family office, government institution, or multilateral organization. We’re ready to collaborate. To learn more about how we can assist you, follow us on LinkedIn or reach out via email.
