ACT.

Doing good doesn’t have to be boring and it shouldn’t feel like a mandatory box your organization has to check. We can help you design a social impact strategy that will align with your organization’s ethos while capitalizing on your strengths. Then, we can help you execute that strategy in a way that will differentiate you from your competitors and give your employees something they’ll want to rally around.

This is where our social impact skills come into play.

INSPIRE.

If you save a tree in the forest and nobody is there to see it, did you really save the tree? Well, yeah, you did -- and good on you! -- but you’re also missing out on a key opportunity. Social impact shouldn’t happen in a vacuum. We can help you find compelling ways to tell your story.

This is where our content strategy skills come into play.

ENGAGE.

If you tell everybody about how you saved a tree in the forest and nobody cares… okay, we’ve overplayed this metaphor. The point is, even the best stories need strong distribution strategies if they’re going to reach and catalyze the right people. We can find clever and creative ways to help you build a lasting and engaged audience that will respond to your story.

This is where our audience development skills come into play.

Carina Kolodny

With a BA from Sarah Lawrence and a MA from Parsons, Carina has traversed the world as a media activist and transmedia storyteller. Her work is Emmy-nominated, Webby-nominated and Shorty award winning.

Kolodny has worked for places like Hearst Magazines, Viacom International and The Huffington Post. Kolodny's work experience is diverse, but certain threads run throughout the entirety of her career:

  • Meeting audiences where they are and activating them into meaningful action

  • Experimenting with new technologies and methods of storytelling

  • Finding unique & engaging points of entry into difficult and complicated subject matter

  • Connecting people, places, products and ideas in unorthodox ways

Kolodny takes her work very seriously but she doesn't take herself very seriously. She thinks life is probably better that way.
