Our Approach to Impact

At FSG, we believe that solving the world’s most challenging societal problems requires new ways of thinking, acting, and partnering. We’ve identified four key ideas that we believe are critical to creating large-scale change. By engaging with different actors to support our research, garner insights, and to share ideas, FSG works collectively to discover new ways to solve social problems. We achieve impact through our consulting services, field and grant-funded research, partnerships, events, communities of practice, and published work. Learn more about our approaches below.
