Open Mind offers research and consulting services that help advance social change and enhance the stability of nonprofits working to create a better world. We are interested in people and organizations that want to think and do differently.

We help you find the key to turn vision into actionable ideas, turn systems into doorways for real change, and practice leadership to advance equity. Project selection is based on finding the right alignment with a client's values, purpose and work style.
