Cardea is a national women of color-led organization. From the moment we connect, we seek to understand how you dream the world might be.

How We’ll Work Together

With every interaction, our team engages in a thoughtful conversation that begins with the historical, systemic, structural, and institutional issues that impact your work. We explore the communities and partners that are important to you, the strengths of your organization and team, and the path you envision.

We balance evidence, emerging practices, and knowledge rooted in lived experience. From there, we initiate a process of inquiry to engage, learn, and innovate, taking steps toward that dream.
