What We Believe

What We Do

We believe living an issue every day makes you an expert, and that leaders make better decisions when they can access and learn from those "everyday experts." Deep insights shouldn't just be for consumer products. Decision makers in government, anchor institutions, and major companies need the wisdom of lived experience to produce better results. 

We help leaders develop meaningful solutions to difficult problems by connecting them to the people who live those issues every day. Through our unique combination of organizing and facilitation, we bring decision makers and everyday experts together for productive, forward-thinking conversations. Our engagement efforts produce clear insights, actionable ideas, and innovative strategies for change.  

“The three conversations we did with Cohear - I can’t think of a time when we learned more. They were totally transformational for us.”

-Meghan Cummings, Executive Director of the Women’s Fund of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation

How It Works

We believe that real relationships are essential to community engagement. That's why we've built a powerful civic network of Cohear "Bridgebuilders" who are committed to helping get new voices to the table. We utilize proven organizing strategies to activate the Bridgebuilder network and empower everyday experts to participate.
