The future is now

Tension today

Society has hit a period of peak acceleration, yet the pace of progress in the public sector remains steady at best. Outdated methodologies, thinning resources, and an entrenched reliance on federal funding leaves the public sector, vulnerable to change.

Compounded by a polarized political climate, many organizations are left unable to maintain what was once a comfortable status quo. In this age of rapid social change and technological advancement, new thinking is needed.

Changemakers today are able to harness a fresh new set of tangible and intangible tools to assist them on their impact journey. Comfortable digging deep into historically complex “gray” areas and pulling expertise from across disciplines, disruptors are bringing insight, rigor–and perhaps a bit of naivety–to push boundaries beyond the box. Celebrity tabloids and push notifications aside, those driven by purpose, passion, and intellect have been laying the groundwork to turn the tide.

Over the past couple of decades, a number “socially conscious” companies have emerged. They place their financial heft and brand recognition behind doing good to bring global gravitas to the social impact space—a concept that today has become widely accepted and applauded in the for-profit world.

From the boardrooms of the Fortune 500 to the interiors of artists’ studios, methods of authentic impact are dominating the conversation.

Is the public sector ready to unpack possible?
