"All investors rightly expect a return on their investment... Social investors are no different. They are profit seekers of the very best kind, those who believe in a better future for the arts, medical research, the environment, and countless other areas of social-profit focus." - Claire Gaudiani
Globalhood believes that all people and organizations working in development can be more successful by coordinating efforts, exchanging expertise, sharing outcomes and building connections with each other. By building a diverse community of practitioners, experts, students and volunteers, we aim to create more effective approaches to addressing both local and global challenges.
We aim to achieve the following:
More effective development projects, fewer wasted resources.
Our multidisciplinary services enable projects to access ideas, techniques and information that they might not otherwise have considered, and to avoid potential pitfalls that they might not otherwise have foreseen.
A streamlined approach to finding diverse knowledge and skills.
We provide a centralized place for accessing a wide assortment of knowledge and experience. This one-stop approach allows project leaders to save time that would otherwise be spent hunting for various consultants and resources.
Opportunities to tap into under-utilized human capital.
Globalhood's network model allows us to call on the and experience of many experts and practitioners who are only available on a part-time basis. We provide opportunities for people to get involved in international development work.
The formation of a collaborative community.
Globalhood fosters a proactive and collaborative environment where professionals already working within the nonprofit field will be able to easily exchange ideas and form partnerships.
