Sharing our constantly evolving approach based on research, relationship, and pilot iteration

Conversations and relationships are at the core of everything we do.

From communicating regularly with people who have been historically excluded to distributing our findings and best practices— we believe in full transparency and the importance of bringing everyone together to reach our collective goals. Shared knowledge elevates us, leads to equity across all sectors, and is one of the throughlines for the GET Cities Theory of Change. 

Our Theory of Change shares how utilizing evidence, insights, and the lived experiences of marginalized voices can ignite a chain reaction to true change.
