Journey through the key phases of our work together and explore how equity supports each step of a typical partnership.
Our questionnaire is a quick, critical way for your team to build internal consensus and for our team to get up to speed on your goals.
You’re the experts in your field, and we need to be the best strategic partners for you possible. We’ll dig in on on research to help you define and achieve your goals.
Landscape research helps position your brand and mission in a broader context, ensuring that you’re defining and achieving your theory of change in the most impactful way.
Our discovery workshops are rich, efficient experiences, bringing both our teams together in person to make key strategic decisions and set the tone for the work to come. Depending on scope, workshops may range from a half day to three full days.
As we craft your questionnaire, we’ll include questions that challenge assumptions about your work and target audiences. We’ll also encourage you to share the questionnaire widely for inclusive input.
While researching, we’ll keep a careful eye on how equity has, or hasn’t, played a part in your internal and external brand. Equity is so important, but not always easy, so we’ll meet you wherever you’re starting.
As we consider your trajectory around a commitment to equity, we want to understand where other folks in your field are, or aren’t. Knowing how you stack up, both internally and in your external brand, can help you better define and refine your approach.
Discovery workshops put equity values into action. We root everything from roster to facilitation in equitable practices, ensuring that the right folks are represented and their voices are heard.
Every organization needs a north star brand and messaging strategy — we can help you build yours from scratch, do a complete overhaul of your existing brand, or a quick refresh. We build on our impact analysis work to create a powerful foundation for the decisions to come.
Perhaps you already have a strong brand, or you know that your goals are more focused on an urgent campaign or movement-building. We’ll help you build and execute outcome-driven campaign and movement strategies.
Are you fully leveraging all your communications channels? Is your team set up to manage all your brand or campaign touch-points? We can help you plan for the most effective communications across a range of platforms.
All this work can bring up hard questions and highlight important internal gaps. Provoc often supports our clients in making vital organizational changes to drive vision and mission forward.
The core of your brand needs to resonate with the communities you serve, so we test any new name, logo or tagline ideas with the right communities rather than making assumptions about what will and won’t be effective.
We believe that any movement toward a just world must be radically inclusive, so we’ll challenge your team to think beyond numbers, shifting toward accessible strategies that cut across traditional divides.
Words matter. Images matter. We’re deeply invested in accessibility and authenticity of representation in content and channel strategies.
Infusing truly equitable practices isn’t always comfortable. We’ll guide you through hard questions to reach authentic answers, and we’ll challenge your team (and ours) to move beyond comfort zones into effective, authentic inclusivity.
Building on the foundations of impact analysis and strategy, we partner with you to bring your work to life across a range of creative collateral. Whether it’s video, logo and digital design, print collateral, exhibition design, email templates or beyond, your strategy and vision for impact will guide every creative decision.
Your website and digital strategy are cornerstones of your work. Web design, UX, digital and content strategies are all becoming more and more sophisticated, so it’s critical that your organization leverages current best practices for highest conversions and impact.
One of our unique areas of focus is conversion and recruitment efforts, and we can amplify your reach to meet key goals and performance metrics. We have a depth of expertise in health registries, recruiting and engaging participants for accelerated clinical trial enrollment.
Creative collateral development is one of the first visual manifestations of your deep strategic thinking. We understand the nuance that exists in visuals and we will work together to develop collateral that resonates with your target audiences.
We want to make sure your website converts at a high rate, to help further your organizational mission. We also want to make sure your site is accessible to all people who visit, so we use the most up-to-date best practices of accessibility and equitable user experience.
We bring our expertise in equity-driven messaging and communications to our work in clinical trial recruitment — disparities in both health outcomes and participation in trials require particular attention to under-represented communities.
When launching a brand or campaign launch we can also support marketing (social media, email, online ads, etc.), ad placement, A/B testing of ads, landing page design, welcome series setup and drip campaign setup.
Once your site is ready to go live, we help with CMS training, content loading support, QA testing, fixes and cross browser check, launch day planning, and can strategize your outreach across channels to drive traffic.
Making sure your launch is accessible to everyone is important to us, so we use an equity lens for all launch decisions from channel to ad placement. We test our designs and ads before launching them externally to be sure they have the intended effect on target audiences.
As much as we want your users to be able to interact with your website, that will be impossible if your team doesn’t master the tools. We structure our trainings to make sure folks on your team understand all the ins and outs of the website.
After we’ve celebrated launch, we’ll shift into the post-launch phase, where elements might need to be adjusted, tweaked and perfected as we learn even more.
Our commitment is to positive, measurable impact in the world. So, we circle back and evaluate against our initial goals and metrics, documenting successes, challenges and learnings to take forward.
Everything we learn from launch and beyond will set your future work up for more efficient success. We’ll turn our learnings into recommendations for your team moving forward and for improvements to our teams’ future collaborations.
Although we are as thoughtful and intentional as possible during our implementation planning, we can’t predict every potential hurdle. One key to equity-driven work is a willingness to hear concerns and iterate quickly.
During impact assessment, we make sure that we are assessing our impact in communities most impacted by your issue area. We work hard to define evaluable metrics at the start of a project and to objectively evaluate against those at the close of a project.
Partnerships rooted in an equity lens set the stage for your team’s ongoing evolution toward equity in your overall work. We’ll support your team to plan for deepening your equity commitments and practices.
Launching your brand, campaign or web presence is just the beginning. We specialize in long term strategic planning and partnerships so you continue to grow and get the most out of what we’ve built together. Ongoing work may include engaging and retaining current audiences and reaching new ones, setting and monitoring even more ambitious KPIs based on your long term strategy, monthly audience and user research, A/B split testing and optimization, or results tracking and reporting. Along the way we can adjust your core strategy based on evolving needs and dive into any design or technical implementation to support strategic goals. We’re committed to your impact and to partnership that drives your goals forward.
Climate change not only threatens to disrupt a fragile global ecosystem, but it exacerbates existing inequities, including the way vital resources are distributed. Our species is in the midst of a profound existential crisis, but we believe we have everything we need to re-build our world’s systems to support our population and protect our beautiful planet. We seek clients who restore vital ecosystems, build sustainably with vulnerable communities and accelerate our planet’s renewable energy future.
You may call it equity. Or anti-racism. Or social justice. Or civil and human rights. Regardless of your starting point, we seek partnerships with clients who work to dramatically improve people’s lives by dismantling the root causes of inequity. We believe that tackling this challenge means redesigning our economic and social systems so that they no longer benefit the wealthy at the expense of basic rights and the common good.
American democracy is still in its infancy — and this imperfect experiment has been emulated by people all over the world. We believe that the era of Donald Trump is a test of our democratic ideals, and our progressive community must rise to the occasion to strengthen and defend them. For too long, “non-profits” and “issue advocacy” have been saddled with outdated and underfunded strategies and digital tools. We seek innovative partners ready to leverage strategy, design and storytelling to drive our political movements forward.
