Dear friends and colleagues,

It is a joy and honor to launch our new firm today. Luminare Group has been under development in spirit for a number of years and has now crystallized with the collective energy, insight and vision of many brilliant collaborators and clients. Please visit our beautiful new website to see our vision.

Luminare Group is unrelenting in our pursuit of an equitable and just world and we are driven to work with those who are equally unrelenting. All too often data and information, and how they are used, inadvertently reinforce oppressions we seek to eliminate. We believe we have a moral imperative to do our work differently, interrupt existing habits and invest in new practices to support organizations to have deeper impact.

We offer strategic planning and evaluation consulting services, capacity building and resources for courageous, new and seasoned leaders and their organizations. We are particularly inspired by those leaders and organizations addressing disparity and structural barriers to equity. We are pushing practice - ours and the greater field’s - in areas related to evaluation, evaluative thinking and leadership development.

This launch also introduces our powerful, diverse and multidisciplinary team. We have decades of experience supporting individuals, organizations, networks and movements in and across the philanthropic and social sectors to be explicit in their intentions, true to their values and aligned in their actions.  

Over the next few weeks, we look forward to telling you more about our approach, introducing you to our team members and sharing some timely and useful resources to support your work.

Personally, I am truly grateful for each of you who have been part of this journey with me. Luminare Group is a manifestation of 25 years of work that I have an honor and privilege to wake up and do every day. It will be a pleasure for Luminare Group to serve alongside you to advance our shared vision and values over the coming years. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to be in touch. I would love to hear from you.
