THE STRATEGIC
INFORMATION GAP

BETWEEN
CIVIL SOCIETY
AND BUSINESS

In 2013, we founded Empower in order to strengthen civil society and improve corporate accountability.

OUR SERVICES

Strategic research identifies the power relationships between a company and its stakeholders, placing the company in the broader context of its economic, political, and social environments.

Our researchers work with clients and partners to identify the political, legal, regulatory, and social environments that affect their organizations. Through consultations, we help identify the power relationships, risk, and opportunities in their operating environments.

Our multilingual team is prepared to conduct classroom or on-site trainings in all facets of strategic research, campaign planning, internal capacity building, and institutional strengthening in order to meet the needs of our clients and partners.

ISSUES

Además de la investigación empresarial estratégica, asesoramiento y capacitación para clientes y contrapartes, Empower se especializa en cuatro temas que representan desafíos extremos ahora y en el futuro para las y los defensores de derechos humanos y las organizaciones de la sociedad civil garantes de la rendición de cuentas empresarial.

As unprecedented wealth transfer takes place worldwide, a concomitant capital shift from public to private markets is happening in real-time and right under our noses.

Beyond defending and demanding human rights and corporate accountability, together we must build democratic economies for all, not just an elite few.

We research the links between companies, governments, and organized crime in order to find the true beneficiaries and intellectual authors of grave human rights violations.

We research, monitor, and expose new threats to human rights posed by technology in the hands of companies and governments.

SOCIAL COMMITMENT

At Empower we follow a Social Commitment and we work with clients and partners that are aligned with them. In addition, we pledge to distribute the majority of our annual profits as philanthropic contributions to civil society partners.
