STRATEGY

How can your organization do well by doing good? It starts with a strong strategy for embedding social responsibility throughout. My interdisciplinary approach incorporates shared value, systems thinking, human-centered design and Theory of Change frameworks.

 

How we can work together:

  • Strategic framework development
  • Impact measurement
  • Trends analysis and benchmarking
  • Innovation management
  • Project management

COMMUNICATIONS

How do you share your social impact story in a way that’s engaging, authentic and true to your brand? As a former journalist, I take an evidence-based approach that is informed by insights from cognitive psychology, behavioral economics and other disciplines.

 

How we can work together:

  • Communications strategy
  • Creative concept development and execution
  • Content creation (copywriting, presentation design, data visualization)
  • Digital marketing (email marketing, social media)
  • Corporate responsibility reporting (GRI G4)

community

Social change doesn’t happen in a bubble. How do you build community around social responsibility initiatives and unite like-minded people and organizations around a common goal? I start by thinking about what drives and motivates people.

 

How we can work together:

  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Employee engagement
  • Training and education
  • Strategic partnerships

Jessica embraces the entrepreneurial ethos of taking intelligent risks, learning from both success and failure, and constantly challenging herself to continue growing with every opportunity. At Quirky, this translated into identifying needs for an early stage startup, implementing new systems and processes, monitoring results, bravely killing methods that were not successful, and pushing through solutions as needed.
— Shirley Chan, Former Director of Content, Community & Customer Service, Quirky
