CGR’s Strategic Focus

CGR refreshed our strategic framework in 2020-21 to explore ways to sharpen our focus and increase our impact. With the help of our consultant, Suzanne Piotrowski of Badfish Consulting, we talked with clients and community members to gain outside perspective and then worked with our board to deeply understand and define our values, purpose, and value proposition to clients and communities.

The framework we developed, illustrated below, elevates our commitment to equity, especially racial equity, and centers our focus on our mission and vision.
