Our Approach

Our comprehensive understanding of education as a continuum of interconnected supports for children and families pushes us to reimagine education for all as a public good.

Did you know the “co” in Candor & Co doesn’t stand for company?

It represents the idea of working “jointly, mutually, together”. We prioritized this idea in the name because we constantly strive to make honest, candid connections with those with whom we work. Simply, we believe honesty, transparency and collaboration are the foundation of transformative outcomes.

We place relationships at the center of everything we do.

We surface diverse perspectives.

We uphold an unrelenting
commitment to equity.

Business Philosophy

We form strategic alliances with organizations to create positive, systems-level change for children, families and communities through program design, strategic implementation, and social impact.

We place relationships at the center of our work by striving for connectedness and alignment with our partners and stakeholders. We pride ourselves in our ability to reflect, surface diverse perspectives, and pull into focus key information and ideas.

We uphold an unrelenting commitment to antiracism and understand this as a process of unlearning and reorienting. We understand that change is incremental, and this vision requires bipartisan collaboration, patience, and a commitment to be open to diverse perspectives.
