On working at FSG
“I came to FSG because of my passion to help organizations more effectively achieve social impact and reach their communities in new and profound ways. More than ever, the lines are being blurred around how, where, and when social impact can be created. Companies, nonprofits and governments are realizing that they have a lot more in common than they might have once thought. FSG has amazingly brought together a group of intellectually curious and creative people to help organizations envision this new future. Being part of an organization that seeks to cross new boundaries and think about pressing global challenges in innovative and diverse ways makes FSG both an exciting and humbling place to work.”
