ProjectCorps, a consulting company perched between the gap of business and technology, prides themselves in hiring talent who are free to be their authentic selves on the job and in the office. As a woman-owned business, they have held true to this belief for the past 16 years. Their working environment is a collaborative beehive full of smart people who want to get up in the morning to make a difference!
Like their approach to talent, ProjectCorps also has a different take on how they provide consultancy services. They serve organizations from visionary start-ups to Fortune-50 companies across a wide variety of industries, including financial services, healthcare, retail, and the public sector. This allows them to bring cross-industry, good practice, best fit perspective to enrich all of their client engagements. Instead of simply sending consultants from a specific “industry vertical”, they focus on broad experience across multiple, relevant industries to drive approaches that are the best fit for the customer. Working side by side with clients, they focus on achieving results with speed, predictability, and control in a manner appropriate for the culture of the organization.
Above all, ProjectCorps respects that ideas and solutions emerge from diverse points of view. President & CEO Shelley Gaddie says that she is “rooted in the belief that leadership is grounded in integrity and humility, forged by experience, and communicated through behavior.” Chief Operating Officer Paul Tripp echoes this by stating “I want to get up in the morning believing that I am going to make a difference. I joined ProjectCorps because they put this belief into action.”
ProjectCorps joined GSBA because they see the organization as forward thinking and as advocates of growth and abundance for the whole of the community and our allies. They are firm supporters of LGBTQ business enterprise certification through the NGLCC – the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce, and believe that wider recognition is long past due. Shelley adds “Becoming certified celebrates and honors who we are as individuals, people, groups and organizations. We look forward to linking arms with other GSBA and NGLCC members to continue to affect positive change within the Puget Sound region and beyond.”
ProjectCorps is a brand-new GSBA Pearl Sponsor, investing equally in the chamber and the Scholarship Fund. Learn more about ProjectCorps
