"Third Plateau partnered with us to design and carry out a rigorous, robust program evaluation, giving us actionable information about what we could celebrate, where we might improve, and changes we might make to deepen participant and partner experience."


Kate Belza O’Bannon

Chief Strategy Officer, Repair the World

"I have truly benefitted from the dynamic professional coaching provided by Third Plateau, which has helped me develop and strengthen my emotional intelligence and self-awareness as a leader, as well as hone the management of my team which includes complicated interpersonal relationships."


Lionel C. Johnson

President, Pacific Pension Institute

"After our work with Third Plateau, we really ramped up our ability to expand organizational capacity, moving from just one part-time paid employee to two full-time employees and are about to hire a third."


Kate Sonka

Executive Director, Teach Access

"Third Plateau provided a safe space for me to think creatively and expansively as a social entrepreneur. They asked me the hard questions that helped me refine my idea and articulate the change I wanted to see in the world in a way that it could be shared with others. The business plan we created was catalytic for our work, capturing our strategy to disrupt the way philanthropy relates to and invests in Indigenous Peoples and serving as a tool for us to attract significant investment.”


Nick Tilsen

President & CEO, NDN Collective

"The landscape research and stakeholder interviews Third Plateau conducted created an evidence base for our idea, giving us confidence that our services were being responsive to real gaps and needs in the field."


Liz Welch

"Over the past six years, Third Plateau has partnered with us to deepen our impact and expand our reach. When we started working together, IYT served 700 young men of color in 7 schools. Today, we serve 4,000 in 63 schools across seven counties. Their team has guided us at each transitional point, working side by side to help plan, build, and problem solve. They are the best social impact consultants in the world!"
