About Us

Public Equity Group works with partners poised to make a demonstrable difference on the “big issues of the day,” and in the lives of disadvantaged populations. In particular, we look for clients with the following qualities:
  • Deep social justice commitment and compatible organization values
  • High potential for national or global impact, scale, and/or replication
  • Strong leadership (strategic thinking, management, implementation)
  • High organization capacity to implement (staff and board quality; planning, monitoring, operations, and systems quality)

PEG teams engages in strategy and business planning that is robust, practical, and affordable. Our work typically culminates in summary strategic plans that detail a client’s 3-5+ year goals and Theory of Change, programmatic priorities, organization (staff, skill and system requirements), and economic requirements – as well as ongoing implementation and project management plans. We also value diversity and cultural competency, a commitment reflected in our leadership, client selection, methodology, staffing, communication & more.

By forging deep, long-term relationships with leaders and organizations at the forefront of their respective fields, supporting their evolution, and celebrating their successes via case studies, media, and more – long after the engagement has ended – we aim to strengthen and empower our partners, helping them build demonstrably better "models" for change; and ultimately spur dramatic improvements in the quality of life of vulnerable populations and communities.
