Connect the Dots is a stakeholder and community engagement firm based in Philadelphia that brings together community and public sector partners to develop innovative and actionable solutions for our towns and cities.

We work alongside partners to reimagine the future of our cities and towns by crafting creative and iterative engagement processes that foster participation, build trust, and amplify voices historically underrepresented.

The Connect the Dots Approach

Our Values

This isn’t your one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter engagement process.

We lead with the values that guide our work.

  • Creative: We build innovative processes that engage stakeholders, encourage collaboration and increases participation.
  • Inclusive: We believe in equitable engagement that shares and shifts power to citizens in the design of their cities and spaces. We co-create each engagement process in collaboration with local communities.
  • Sustainable: Complex problems require sustainable solutions. We work to find the right answer, not the right-now quick fix.
  • Impact Driven: We tie engagement efforts to key decision points so participants see their input reflected in the results, working with clients to clearly define success measure long-term impacts.
