What We Do
What We Do
We Help Public Institutions Find Solutions
Consensus KC brings people together to learn, to talk, and to find common ground for action on issues big and small. We conduct research, design outreach campaigns, and tailor our methods to meet the challenge at hand. From day-long meetings of several hundred people to smaller focus groups and online surveys, we help governments, nonprofits, and others find solutions to the toughest public problems.
Finding Common Ground Using a Process Mindset
For more than 30 years, Consensus has engaged the public in finding solutions. Our approach pays off with:
- Solutions built around the common good rather than the wishes of special interest groups;
- New ideas that can move past gridlock, conflict, and solution wars;
- Proposals that work in the real world; and
- The political will to get things done.
The Civility Awards
Honoring those Working Across Differences
The annual Civility Awards honor people, organizations, and businesses working across differences to solve problems. Every day, in every community, people are working to build bridges, engage in public policy, and tackle the big issues we face in society. Often, this extraordinary work goes unnoticed. We created the Civility Awards to make sure it doesn’t.
2020 Civility Awards Cancelled
NOTE: The 2020 Civility Awards are cancelled due to COVID-19. We are using this time to reimagine the awards. Stay tuned for updates!
