What are our Priorities?

Significant challenges exist in the realms of education, environment, economics, healthcare, human rights, infrastructure, and security.

The institutions who are traditionally mandated to take on these global challenges suffer from structural inefficiencies to an immobilizing degree. Small non-profits often do not have the resources or networks to scale their initiatives, and large organizations such as the United Nations are mired in bureaucratic processes that compromise agility. Governments suffer from the same problem and are moreover subject to the shifting priorities of political parties. In light of this paralysis of the public sector, it is clear that there is a real opportunity for the private sector to step in here—not only for impact but for growth.

Education

Education

We aim to advance understanding of how education leaders can define and practice learning that is relevant, powerful and effective in the 21st century for all students, including marginalized youth. We conduct research on effective policy, practices and programs and work with policymakers and instructors to build helpful learning opportunities and tools to advance effective, engaging and empowering teaching and learning. We aim to create a dynamic network of partners who share our goals of furthering knowledge about what an education of quality is and how to support it, and who have the desire to find ways of impacting policy and practice to support the creation of high quality education at scale, in ways that benefit all students.

Environment

Environment

Our mission is to bring clarity to the issues impacting our global environment. By providing clear measurement, best practice research and development of future scenarios we support individuals and institutions in making policy and taking urgent action. We don’t believe that we can rely on governments to address our global environment — citizens, investors and industry executives have far greater potential to address our growing environmental challenges.

Economics

Economics

Economic progress depends on control over the direction of the global economy, and awareness that every nation has a real role to play in the design of this planet’s future and its people. Diversity is strength, and globalization is a tool to be used for the progress not only of the global economy, but of civilization.

Healthcare

Healthcare

We believe that healthcare will someday become a basic human right. Today, good healthcare is a privilege experienced by less than 10% of the world’s population. We provide research and best practices to the entire healthcare value chain that will enable drastic reductions in healthcare costs and bring effective health systems to all people. Our research is focused on developing healthcare best practices and delivery systems that will leverage technology to transform care.

Human Rights

Human Rights

For us, human rights encompasses everything from women’s rights to freedom to political structures. Our research shows a strong correlation between human rights and economic development. We seek to illuminate the best practices and value chains that can build improvements in human rights. Our research is intended to support all political parties and citizens with the knowledge required to address human rights challenges at all levels, shapes, and forms.

Security

Security

With the Digital Age, cybersecurity threats have become far more regular in our discussions on global security and well-being. Instead of those conversations being limited to the abuses of human rights or the proliferation of nuclear weapon capabilities across the globe, we have begun to include our worries and anxieties about the security of our identities, email-phishing attempts, and the hackable technologies that our lives literally rely on.

Smart cars, smart home alarm systems, pacemakers, plane systems, power grids, and mobile banking apps, have all been reported to be hackable. Precautions are in place by those whose careers are invested in the technology, but what other solutions and practices can we as Intelligence practitioners develop to mitigate these threats?

Infrastructure

Infrastructure

As civilization grows the types of support that it creates a need for can be overwhelming. Within the digital age, or any general introduction of a cross-cultural change, the types of infrastructure evolve, and for our sake they become digitized as to provide a more efficient kind of support.
