The Blue Garnet Approach

For organizations at an inflection point, we bring the strategy support and data you need to move forward.

  • We start with the end in mind, bringing an impact-focus
  • We put structure to ambiguity, ensuring we answer the right questions in the right way
  • We ground visionary goals in practical realities, making it possible for our clients to dream big AND deliver with confidence
  • We include diverse perspectives and equitable practices at every level, fostering inclusivity and challenging assumptions
  • We are capacity-builders at heart, making sure our clients have what they need to make their vision a reality.

Blue Garnet is deeply committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. We were founded on the explicit desire to tackle complex social and racial justice issues from a long-term systems view, and the belief that to do so requires a strengths-based, inclusive approach to problem-solving.
