It started with an idea for a consulting and support group centering equity and justice and built on transparent relationships. Rooted in Glen Price’s previous work in professional, volunteer, and elected positions, he saw an opportunity for serving public and non-profit organizations with integrated participatory planning and resource development initiatives. From a humble beginning in Glen’s basement, one of the first initial successes was supporting the City of Richmond Workforce Development Board to secure a multi-million dollar United States Department of Labor grant. Soon thereafter, GPG was selected to support the County of Sonoma with innovative resource development work, a relationship that continues to this day. In the early 2000’s, GPG honed its strategic planning skills by supporting Alameda County and its partners to launch Northern California’s first Family Justice Center, an integrated service center for survivors of intimate partner violence. Building on these collaborative accomplishments, GPG has sought to continually sharpen and improve its services to meet the evolving needs of new clients.
We have grown substantially since our inception in 2002. What was once a 1-man operation in an El Cerrito basement has grown into a 14-person team supporting public, philanthropic, and non-profit organizations; a 14-person team that spans across the nation from the Bay Area, Los Angeles, Lake Tahoe, Portland, to Philadelphia. As a team, we are incredibly proud of the massive impact that past and present GPGers have contributed to many local, state, federal, and international initiatives for the public good. Moreover, we are grateful to the members of our team for the diverse experiences and expertise that they bring to their efforts to provide the most comprehensive support possible for our clients.
For 20 years, GPG has been grateful to work and learn with an amazing group of clients, partners, and team members. We’re proud that so many of these relationships are ongoing and are looking forward to what the next 20 years will bring!
