Our Impact

Rho Impact is committed to the pursuit of making a positive impact on the world. We see this as an aspiration that requires perseverance, humility, and collaboration. We believe so strongly in this mission that we freely contribute in a number of ways to methodological development, thought leadership, and capacity-building to strengthen the broader impact community.
