Connect the Dots values collaboration, equity, impact, and is passionate about the evolution of livable and just urban places.
We are an impact-driven, fully women-owned firm that specializes in civic and community engagement. We build consultative processes based on data that help organizations meaningfully engage with their stakeholders to move projects forward with confidence and trust. We work alongside local partners to craft insight-driven and iterative engagement processes that foster participation, build capacity, and re-imagine the future of our communities.
Connect the Dots was founded on the basis of finding, connecting, and amplifying voices that have been historically underrepresented in planning and design processes. We believe in a world where all citizens are involved in designing their cities and spaces, and where communities themselves have the means to control and sustain their environments. We have seen first hand how direct involvement and thoughtful communication surrounding complex issues leads to stronger community support and a lasting sense of ownership.
The careful and collaborative engagement of all voices is critical to forming positive responses to systemic challenges. As a result, we have a wide range of experience working with public and private sector entities to co-design with stakeholders to enable decisions that drive bold and equitable solutions.
