Atlas Network offers partner organizations in its network in-depth consulting services on a variety of themes. These services are largely pro bono for successful applicants in accordance with our mission to strengthen the capacity and effectiveness of local think tanks. While each consulting engagement is customized to meet the particular needs of the client, a typical experience involves multiple collaborative exercises both virtually and in-person over the course of several weeks.
Atlas Network’s consulting team practices what is known as process consulting, which emphasizes the client’s own leadership and autonomy in support of local vision and priorities. To learn more about the various themes and goals of consulting engagements and to apply for services, please review the following opportunities.
