A professional network united by our ambition for impact.

Our STory
We support and connect consultants who are passionate about improving the world.

Consultants for Impact has been dedicated to supporting and connecting consultants passionate about improving the world since 2019. We got our start when a small but mighty crew of Boston Consulting Group and McKinsey consultants joined forces. Our founding members were unified by a shared belief that business consultants have immense potential for positive impact when they apply their ambition and passion for data-driven solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.

Originally called the Effective Altruism Consulting Network, we initially sought impact by introducing fellow consultants to the ideas of Effective Altruism. We emphasized the importance of listening to the data when making strategic career and donation choices, which we believe can multiply an individual’s lifetime impact by 10 or more!

Since 2019, our network has grown to include 1000+ professionals from across the globe. Our staff provides career guidance, role matchmaking, retreats, donation advice, and tailored resources to help consultants make a meaningful difference. If you or someone you know is a consultant looking to make a positive change and would like support, reach out.

We’re here to help you align your career with your values.

Our Principles
We're united by our commitments.

Our network is full of caring, thoughtful people from around the world from a wide range of backgrounds, interests, and affiliations. What we have in common is a commitment to use our time and resources wisely.

Seeking The Truth

The world is very complicated, and as business consultants, we know that plans are unlikely to succeed if they aren’t deeply based in reality. We believe in changing our minds and striving to impartially seek the truth.

Aiming For Impact

We are altruistically ambitious: looking not just to grow our own careers, but to make things better for as many others as we can. Members of our network have gone on to work for the UK government on AI and pandemic preparedness, started their own impact-focused consulting firms, and founded nonprofits to address everything from syphilis in low and middle-income countries to talent coordination in the animal advocacy space.

Prioritizing Strategically

Some career paths and donation opportunities are 100 times more impactful than others. When analyzing which social problems we want to address, we consider how big the problem is, how easy it is to solve, and how much attention it currently receives.

We're run by and for consultants.
