"I routinely tell people I have the best job in the world (and mean it!). Every day at FSG brings new challenges and new opportunities for making change."
"Our people are incredibly passionate about changing the world for the better and our clients really have the ability to make a global impact."
"It's exciting to see our work make a difference for funders and grantees."
Executive Director, SVI
"Every day I have the opportunity to bring strategy consulting skills to complex social sector challenges."
"We’ve just passed the ten year mark on Millennium Development Goals. The social sector has invested huge sums of money into partnerships and learning but we still have a long way to go. We need to press even harder in technology, scale and efficiency – to close the gap in the next five years."
"I’m at FSG because I want to be part of a movement where I enjoy coming to work every day, be continuously challenged in what I do, and solve those challenges with people who I care about."
"It is a privilege to be at FSG and be part of the movement to bring powerful ideas like Shared Value, Catalytic Philanthropy and Collective Impact to the social sector. It is what gets me up every day and keeps me inspired."
"Developing solutions to the challenges facing the world right now requires both passion and objectivity. FSG exemplifies both those qualities."
"FSG has a unique viewpoint on global health problems and opportunities. Combining our research with the perspectives from clients - private funders, corporations, governments and implementing organizations - allows us to improve health outcomes for the poor worldwide."
"An exciting development in philanthropy is how effective organizations are prioritizing the importance of having a "learning culture" — where the entire team participates and is invested in reflection, learning, and evaluation to inform strategy."
Founder, Managing Director
"The social sector is evolving in very rapid and fundamental ways. I believe the next 10 years will show more progress in solving the world’s social problems than we have seen in the past 50."
"The complexity and the magnitude of the social challenges we face today requires collective solutions, involving all key stakeholders. That is what drives our work at FSG."
"Foundations play a critical role – I'm excited by the social impact of our client work."
"Evaluation is my passion – it is rooted in an unshakeable belief that by asking questions that matter, evaluation can help organizations achieve their goals. At FSG, we experiment, create, and explore – to ensure that evaluation always leads to learning and impact."
"As an engineer turned social change-maker, I completely resonate with FSG’s mix of analytical might combined with a passion for real social change."
