STRATEGIC PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTATION
SOME OF OUR FAVORITE PROJECTS
Many organizations spend time and money on strategies with but fail to address the challenges of the community. CommunityBuild Ventures helps organizations develop a sustainable strategy through the lens of racial equity impact analysis. We develop systems to effectively track and benchmark their goals. The strategic process will focus on community engagement to ensure greater buy-in and accountability.
