Who We Are

ZRG's Social Impact & Nonprofit practice is a global collaboration of talent professionals with the expertise to identify leaders who will transform social impact organizations- bring about real change and scale to make a real difference. Assisting traditional nonprofits as well as public-private partnerships, incubators, accelerators, corporations, social impact investment funds, universities, and governmental organizations, we can make a difference. We understand the leadership challenges such organizations face that aim to make a difference and provide insight and access to the leaders you want to meet.

Our Approach

ZRG is unique in its approach to leadership identification. Each practice member takes a broad view of talent, encouraging Boards and other stakeholders to identify fundamental skill sets and leadership attributes that will contribute to solving real problems.

With these learnings, our team sources and networks to candidates that have the potential to transform organizations- new approaches, new resource alignment, new funding support- a new paradigm for operating and scaling impact. It is a win for all- clients and leaders looking for new ways to contribute to society.
