CoAct is a social impact organization that explores, discovers, and deploys community centered solutions to address today's most pressing social challenges. Our approach fosters collective approaches, advances new ideas, and creates strategic responses. Through our work we shift the traditional patterns of power and resources to understand the nuances of today's challenges and empower the communities most effected.
The old ways of thinking about social challenges leave many disconnected from the process. Often the communities we aim to serve are left out of the discussion, leaving those with lived experience without a voice. The challenges we face are daunting and are too grand for any one organization to address alone. As we eagerly search for solutions, too often we forget to understand the problems we are trying to solve. Our approach encourages us to think differently, and engage intentionally so we may better understand and solve today's most pressing challenges.
We imagine a future, where well-being is common, our environment is healthy, and wealth is shared. We see our victory in the solutions and tools we leave behind that build the foundation for future work. Impact is our currency, and we look to define our legacy based on the lives that we improve.
Work Collectively: The challenges we face require collective efforts. We bring together diverse practitioners to inspire creative thinking and to share their unique perspectives to help us address our challenges.
Work with Intention: Impact requires putting great ideas into action and taking the necessary shifts to ensure success when obstacles arise. Persistence and dedication are key to implementing change.
Work with Ambition: We embrace grand challenges and the potential they bring to build partnerships and bold solutions.
Work with Openness: We are authentically intentional and transparent with our work. We aim to share insights and build foundations, so the work does not end with us.
Work with Care: Equity is the foundation of our work. We create environments to ensure the voices and ideas of all stakeholders are taken seriously.
Work with Knowledge: We embrace the factual details of our work. By better understanding the challenges, we can design better solutions.
