About Luma Consulting

WHO WE ARE:
Luma Consulting is a purpose-driven consulting firm that works with organizations and people who believe in the power of community to lead change.

WHAT WE DO:
We provide consulting services to help our clients understand their environment, make sense of complex problems and opportunities, clarify purpose and direction, make decisions and pursue goals, and assess the results of their efforts. Our name, Luma, speaks to our desire to foster illumination and clarity. We work with organizations, leaders and collaborations doing social change, philanthropic and creative work.

WHY WE DO IT:
We are motivated both by an appreciation for the beauty, creativity and goodness that are all around us, and by a concern for urgent social inequities and threats to our natural environment. We are inspired by people doing powerful work every day to create a more just, compassionate, and vibrant world, and are energized by being a part of this work.

WHAT WE BELIEVE:
• We can help build a better future by living and working in ways that embody the values, culture and practices of the world we want to live in.
• There are many ways to be a change-maker, and the work of social change and complex social problem-solving is multi-faceted. It requires individuals and organizations playing many different roles, bringing various assets and experiences, and using diverse ideas and approaches.
• Problems of injustice, oppression, inequality, racism and environmental degradation are structural and systemic. We do our work with that context in mind.
• We recognize our work with clients is temporary and that, when we leave, they continue their pursuit of mission and vision. When we have the opportunity to work with our clients, we work as hard as we can to support their effort.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US:
• Integrity and honesty in our relationships, methods and communication.
• Collaboration, because working well with others is both more effective and more satisfying.
• Rigor in what we produce and how we go about producing it.
• Curiosity and listening in order to understand and respond to needs, interests and goals.
• Respect for the knowledge and experience of those doing and impacted by the work.
• Humor because we want to enjoy our work, and we assume our clients do too.
