On working at FSG

“I joined FSG because of a firm belief in the power of systems thinking and collaborative action to affect social change. At FSG, I find myself continually inspired by colleagues and clients who care deeply about the world around them. It’s exciting to come to work each day knowing we are supporting organizations and initiatives to create meaningful, lasting social impact by thoughtfully examining the root causes of social challenges, creating synergies across stakeholders, and supporting evidence-based decision making.”
