On working at FSG

“The challenges we face are increasingly complex, interconnected, and coming at us at a faster pace. It’s time to work together and use everything we know—and everything we can discover—to create systemic change and not simply move from project to project. The people at FSG are smart, passionate, and intent on helping bring people together to create a real impact. It’s an exciting and inspiring place to work.”
