Our Work

Embode has had the privilege of working on a number of important projects with a diverse array of client and partner organisations, from corporate to non-profit. In an increasingly interconnected world, all types of organisations are coming together to work on social issues because they impact us all.

Our growing portfolio of work includes initiatives that called for the integration of experience and expertise across child and social protection, responsible business and organisational analysis. The following are a few of our current and past projects.

This included the design and facilitation of partnership meetings in order to enable optimal communication and renew agreements between the organisations.
