We are committed to the engagement and partnering with individuals, groups, and organizations using an inclusive systemic thinking approach. Inclusive Systemic Thinking’ (IST) is a form of analysis that challenges traditional linear logic and is required when dealing with complex social situations and multifaceted interventions. Using a systems approach means that we do not separate the individual parts of what is being studied to gain understanding, but instead, we consider:
the range of perspectives formed by values, beliefs, and what we know about the world;
the interrelationships and connections between people, things, or ideas and;
reflect continuously on the boundaries (what to include or exclude and why) of the project or system(s) in focus defined by our knowledge, resources, ideas, values, biases, priorities, or perspectives.
Our ethos is one of inclusion, engagement, and building mutual capacity. We, at our core, believe that representation, whether active or passive, is the key to creating a world that works for everyone. Through our services, we promote this philosophy and assist in developing community capacity to effect change.
