Our approach

Bright Impact adopts systems thinking to understand how programs and organizations work, the interrelationships between them, and with the broader contexts in which they operate. We believe taking a holistic view helps to clarify the dependencies, risks and uncertainties inherent in the global challenges we seek to influence and the complex social and natural contexts in which they occur.

Our processes are evidence-informed and results-based. Where possible, we build from existing data, tools and systems that are established and rigorously tested. We employ participatory and mixed methods; and encourage interdisciplinary and non-traditional collaborations.

We are passionate about building and leveraging new and innovative data and technology to accelerate and enhance results. We have an appetite for experimentation and learning by doing. We value honest reporting and open science.  We share what we learn, both what works well and what could be improved, so we all can have greater impact faster.

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
