Can you talk about how often consultants get aligned with projects within their core area of interest? For instance, I have a strong interest in education; what would be my expectations around time spent on that interest vs. exploring other areas of impact?

Great question, Ryan! I'll tee it up for them.

Within the social impact space, do you also take on for-profit clients (social enterprises, impact investing, etc.) and if so what proportion of your portfolio does that tend to make up’?
Redstone Boulder
