Leading for Impact

See our Leading for Impact clients >>


We work as a team within Bridgespan and with our clients. We share what we know and try to align our efforts with those of others who are dedicated to achieving social impact.


We listen to and learn from our clients, funders, and one another. We value diverse perspectives and strive to incorporate them in our work. We act with humility, certain we have as much to learn as to contribute.


Good choices are are grounded in good information.  We value facts and feedback, speak our minds, and understand that
      hard choices and difficult tradeoffs are often necessary.


We value performance and results. We set and hold ourselves accountable for high standards.


We are committed to making a difference through our work. We seek to understand what can be, not simply what is.

As a mission-driven organization, Bridgespan understands the importance of our clients' values and beliefs. Our people are deeply passionate about the work they do and the opportunity to create a better world.
We work to build a better world by strengthening the ability of mission-driven organizations and philanthropists to achieve breakthrough results in addressing society’s most important challenges and opportunities.
