(Washington, D.C.) – The women-led global consulting firm, C5 Collective, is continuing to build on its commitment to invest in projects that elevate women and girls as well as advance public and social policies as part of the global sustainable development agenda. To best serve its clients in these areas, C5 is excited to announce the “C5 Collaborative” - a group of preferred experts who add knowledge, skills, and expertise to the company’s capabilities. All of the brilliant women joining the uniquely curated cohort of professionals have incredible track records in their respective fields. Collectively, they have powered some of the world's biggest brands, companies, and enterprises. C5 believes that when women serve in leadership positions, they can offer fresh perspectives and novel solutions.
“The virtual model of our Collaborative was something that we always knew we wanted to do. The more we are able to tap into a diverse set of global expertise and backgrounds, the more we can deliver innovative strategies and services in a fast-paced, complex world”, said Washington, D.C. based C5 Partner Nicole Schiegg.
The company of all-female partners from the worlds of media, business, and global health and development launched their partnership in 2017, steadily gaining notoriety for the firms’ work with partners such as the Ford Foundation, The Economist, The LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas, Women in Global Health, and New America.
C5 Collective’s vision, “Shaping Ideas for Global Impact” has led them to work with additional clients such as The Access Challenge, which advances universal health coverage in Africa; the upcoming 2020 Women and Girls Summit-Durban, which seeks to empower African women; the NEST360° partnership that aims to halve newborn mortality in sub-Saharan Africa; Americans for Safe Access, which advocates for safe and legal access to marijuana for therapeutic uses and research, and other organizations where they have applied a unique approach to providing clients with ideas and services designed to elevate their profile and thought leadership on the world stage.
“We’re beyond excited to have this extraordinary group of collaborators, all of whom share our mission and belief in advancing global thought leadership that empowers women and delivers social impact. The Collaborative members will add inestimable value to our creative thinking and the strategic goals of our clients,” said C5 Partner, Joy DiBenedetto, currently on an extended assignment in Kenya. “Together, we are an unstoppable force for equality and social good”.
