At LCS, we do not subscribe to white supremacy culture, misogyny, racism, capitalism, homophobia, transphobia, or any other oppressive viewpoints or systems. And we will not work with partners that are unwilling to disable these systems within their own organizations or agencies.
Understanding diverse communities can be challenging; we are here to lighten the load for you. We are honest and positive professionals whose first priority is always the interests of our clients; providing capability, adaptability, and scalability.
Founded in 2019, LCS has been using applied social science and robust JEDI approaches to engage stakeholders in order to tackle some of the world's largest environmental and social problems.
Past projects have included:
Focus groups with fishers in The Bahamas to understand their attitudes and perceptions of marine protected areas
Engaging hunters to improve deer management
Interviewing diverse communities to connect them with natural spaces
Understanding how diverse communities viewed private lands conservation
Incorporating justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion into conservation planning at various organizations
Connecting with rural, suburban, and urban communities to ensure their values were incorporated into conservation efforts that impacted their livelihoods
Our promise to you is that we will do everything we can to ensure that your organization has crystal clear data about the impacted communities you serve so that you can create comprehensive goals, informed strategies, marketing campaigns, and action plans, based on science, that will greatly increase your likelihood of success.
