About Us

PENN Creative Strategy works with nonprofit and foundation leaders to help them thrive in a changing world.

PCS is a certified Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) in New York City that values and exemplifies diversity with our personnel, services, and our consulting approach.

We draw on a variety of tools to support group brainstorming and ideation, small group work to support strategy development, and “live editing” platforms like Google Drive to establish participatory environments and iteratively develop deliverables in collaboration with our clients.

Our Values

  • Co-Creation

    We work collaboratively because we believe expertise is best found in community.

  • Intersectionality

    We are richer for the contributions of people with different lived experiences. We acknowledge the intersections of people's identity by centering diverse voices because we believe that is essential to rebalancing power, access and opportunity.

  • Innovation

    We seek out new ideas and challenge the status quo because improvement is not a destination, it’s a state of being.

  • Justice & Equity

    We seek to build more equitable systems for those we serve because we believe in making the world a better place.

  • Trust

    We create safe spaces for generative dialogue rooted in connection and shared accountability.
