Groundwork is a full-service social innovation agency created to service and support capacity building through innovative and collaborative approaches.

As an agency that operates with an equity for all lens we are proud to work with a diverse team of specialists with decades of combined professional expertise and lived-experience. In an effort to meet the ever evolving needs of our clients and our partners our roster includes experts in community engagement, facilitation, education, research, data analysis, communications, marketing, film, project management, social media, and film.

We are teachers and students; artists and curators; dreamers and doers - true philanthropists with the mission of laying the groundwork, helping to create positive change for an equitable future.

Let's work together to reach your goals!

Organizational - Plan creation and implementation is time consuming and operationally exhausting, no matter the good intentions. We have experience in creating and implementing various types of plans and projects and can do so through an inclusive lens.

Community - Just like every room has a ceiling, everyone has a capacity at which they can no longer function or grow without external support. Through partnership, collaboration and sharing of resources we can support your goals.

Business - To remain competitive in todays marketplace businesses have to be creative, inclusive and consistent. Managing these pieces, operating your business, and trying to grow can often be too much. We can help you prioritize, decolonize and delegate so you can grow with integrity.

Other Services - There are always things we wish we could do if only we had enough time, or help. Maybe your goal seemed like a dream instead of a possibility. What is on your “it would be nice list”? Many hands make light work and through resource sharing community impact is within reach.
