Our commitment to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Our purpose is to create the conditions for human and natural communities to thrive. Our commitment to a common purpose makes us unique and effective, and unified with each other and our partners.

Environmental Improvement

We choose work and make decisions that enhance the physical, social, cultural, economic, and institutional systems that support natural and human communities.


We value and enhance the assets that are temporarily entrusted to our care or that we influence. We steward relationships with clients, staff, partners, and stakeholders by respecting their needs, priorities, and potential. We ensure taxpayer and donor funds are invested to produce their intended outcomes and actively look out for unintended consequences within complex systems.

Enduring Change

We develop tools and practices that alter the basis for decision-making by aligning social, economic, and environmental objectives. We are systems thinkers who create tailored solutions that work for our partners and their communities beyond the life of our engagement.

Open and Honest

We build on areas of consensus, address challenges, and acknowledge uncomfortable truths. We believe honest feedback makes us and our clients more effective. We adjust our communication style to the context and unique communication needs of our audiences.

Empathetic and Inclusive

We focus on understanding each person and respect their motivations, perspectives, and self-expression within their social, institutional, and cultural context. We celebrate diverse identities and experiences within our teams, workplaces, and communities. Being just, equitable, and inclusive is essential to growing the potential of each individual and advancing the purpose of our organization.

High Quality

We are proud of our work and hold ourselves accountable for delivering insightful products and services. We practice deep listening and leverage diverse perspectives and experience to create tailored solutions that meet the needs of the people and organizations we support.


We adapt our approach to emerging needs, evidence, and experience. We make progress, even in the face of uncertainty. We learn from failure and iterate to solutions that work in diverse cultural and institutional contexts. We take a long view on change management, understanding that enduring change requires vision, leadership, and ongoing support.

I feel seen at EI.

From day one, I’ve felt that my voice matters and my contribution is valued. I get to take ownership in the things that I accomplish and know that my efforts impact meaningful change, from combating climate change to fostering diversity and inclusion in the development sector.
