Introducing Lotus Consulting
Lotus Consulting provides research-based advisory and capacity development services to assist organizations to achieve their purpose in the world.
We work with civil society organizations, companies, foundations, and International NGOs to develop innovative, impactful strategies rooted in analysis and action.
We believe every organization should have a clear purpose supported by a culture that develops employees who are intrinsically motivated to align their efforts to achieve the purpose.
The challenges facing the world—issues that affect businesses, government, and civil society in equal part—are too real and too urgent for any sector to go it alone.
China Gender Fund
Conducted a project with UN WOMEN in China to develop a more impactful strategy for the China Gender Fund, the longest standing program of UN Women China and only such gender based trust fund modality in China. Through a stock take review of the 15 year grant portfolio and history, detailed analysis revealed key strengths and opportunities to enhance it’s impact. This data analysis including a survey of past grantees, and stakeholder interviews, to inform the development of a new CGF grant award structure. The re-vitalized fund will have increased impact with a focus on replication and upscaling for impact, in addition to producing more knowledge tools and sharing them at cross-sector learning events.
