What our clients say
Change Consulting was instrumental in landing key earned media hits such as the New York Times, Atlantic Magazine's City Lab and other targeted and large markets for the launch of our RACE COUNTS initiative. From their trusted strategic thinking to their writing, the Change Consulting team hit the mark.
Katie Smith, Former Director of Communications, Advancement Project California
Change Consulting's branding, messaging and communications strategy work for Restore Oakland helped us position the project for continued success. We valued their hands-on partnership, from strategic thinking to execution, as well as their deep commitment to our communities.
Zachary Norris Executive, Former Director, Ella Baker Center for Human Rights
Bilen Mesfin and the team at Change Consulting have consistently provided exceptional communications support -- drafting and placing op eds, advising on strategy, planning press events and more. Bilen and her team are professional, empathetic, deep-listeners with a heart for social justice. For the last five years our non-profit has been able to function without a full time communications staff, and still meet our brand, fundraising, and advocacy goals. The secret has been Change Consulting.
