Optimistic Anthropology's Engagement Evaluation Triangle reflects what we look for in clients and projects, because it encompasses the conditions that will unleash our best work.

Beyond doing work that focuses on positive social impact for all people, at the core of Optimistic Anthropology is our knowledge that we will do the best work for clients and with collaborators when an engagement allows us to:

  • work with people who are passionate and committed to the work they're developing;
  • learn something new, whether about an organization, industry, issue area, community, or geography. 

When choosing opportunities and clients to engage with, we consider these aspects equally as important as fair compensation for our services.  It's our Engagement Evaluation Triangle!
