ESG Strategies

We lead ESG strategy leadership for organizations seeking to build and grow their ESG strategies from the ground up.

All our projects carry a similar theme- never been done before, challenging, and have significantly large implications for societal transformation. We’ll tell you as much as we can, without violating NDA’s.

Leading the discovery, development, and implementation of an ESG strategy for one of the largest commercial real estate companies in North America. The Context: ESG (environmental, social, governance) is used as a framework to assess how a commercial real estate portfolio manages risks and opportunities that shifting market and non-market conditions create. These shifts include changes to environmental systems, social systems, and economic systems – all of which impact the landscape commercial real estate operates in. There are unique opportunities for commercial real estate to become a powerful driver for environmental, social, and governance good. Why This Project Matters: Organizations that adopt…

ESG Impact Projects

We build impact projects that tackle a specific component of an organization’s ESG strategy, such as values alignment, research, employment inclusion, accessibility, supply chain transparency, lived experience inclusion, and gender equity.

Developing safe, equitable pipelines into the tech industry for historically under-represented groups. The Context: The technology industry in North America is valued in the trillions, creating solutions and jobs in manufacturing of electronics, creation of software, computers, or products and services relating to information technology. But does everyone have equitable access to be part of the tech economy? 68% of leaders in major tech companies report a lack of diversity in their workforce, in particular, women/trans/non-binary folk, people of color, and those with diverse abilities/disabilities. Why This Project Matters: We are supporting the development of a pilot project creating pathways for individuals…

Challenging industry through Indigenous-led land based approaches to prevent violence. The Context: Industry, including work camps in remote communities, have been shown to increase violence against women, children, trans, non-binary, two spirit folks, and tokenize Indigenous contributions and leadership, which creates fractions in culture and land based approaches to Indigenous ways of being and living. Why This Project Matters: Acting as a secondary partner to Indigenous-led leadership, this project invests in Indigenous youth to play a role in establishing community-led responses to ending violence and fostering cultural reclamation in two communities (Terrace and Victoria), in partnership with Indigenous knowledge keepers and Elders. What We…

Creating alternative and meaningful pathways to healing and justice through Canada’s first, comprehensive restorative justice process for Survivors of modern day slavery and human trafficking The Context: Restorative Justice (a process rooted in Indigenous peacemaking) is used across Canada in the criminal justice system to address the harm caused by a crime using restorative focused practices. Due to the intense nature and often psychopathic level of abuse, severe crimes, such as human trafficking, Canada lacks a safe structure in which to facilitate the process for Survivors Why This Project Matters: In Canada, there are criminal and civil processes Survivors can engage in to…

Innovating a new response to community safety in municipalities that prioritizes people and decreases negative institutional interactions. The Context: In every community, members come from all walks of life. Municipalities deliver services to maintain public safety, to educate the public on regulatory rules, conduct inspections, mediate between members of the public, and leverage voluntary compliance. For marginalized populations who may have regular interactions, specialized approaches from municipal teams must be engaged to invest in health and wellbeing. Why This Project Matters: Municipalities are responsible to support community safety, yet historically marginalized populations (such as those facing housing insecurity, untreated mental health concerns,…

Establishing brand new approaches to storytelling in Corporate Social Responsibility that protects people and creates great stories. The Context: Social responsibility and shared value projects are becoming more common in the North American business landscape, yet lack an ethical structure for the telling of those project stories. Beneficiaries of CSR projects have experienced their stories exploited, a lack of supportive structures, trauma pornography narratives, and much more, result in long term negative consequences. Why This Project Matters: We have initiated and are conducting the first research into ethical storytelling, to raise up a new standard of storytelling that is powerful and effective….

Leading Canada’s first participatory, leadership capacity building research projects with those with the lived experience of violence, exploitation, and human trafficking to investigate preventative root causes. The Context: Canada’s response to supporting those with lived experience of modern slavery is in its infancy. There is a push towards Survivor-led approaches to ensure services are appropriate. However, there is limited work evaluating the root causes that could lead to a stronger preventative focus. This results in a large burden for those with lived experience to have to “fix” the systems designed to help them. Why This Project Matters: This project uses a unique participatory…

Ethical Storytelling

We build comprehensive approaches that help you tell effective and safe stories, and establish point to point (inception to distribution) ethical storytelling standards that center dignity, inclusion, and powerful communication.

Completion date: 2023
Creating Canada’s first ethical storytelling approach in documentaries involving marginalized populations.  Why This Project Matters: Stories are an incredibly important component of sharing and developing the history of humanity. We believe in treating the stories of marginalized folks and nuanced topics with great care, especially in public focused communication. Exploitive storytelling damages people, communities, movements, and brands. Working with two female led film companies, we are developing ethical storytelling approaches that create effective, safe, and dignified stories. What We Are Doing: Conducting a risk assessment and living consent forms, ethical recruitment processes, trauma informed approaches to interviews, ethical storytelling organizational values and policies,…
