Konesens Development is a boutique consultancy that furthers equity and inclusion through a range of services that support the peaceful and prosperous co-existence for everyone.
Through CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), ESG (Environment Social Governance), and DEI (Diversity Equity Inclusion) training and support, sustainable tourism development, and strategic trade and investment facilitation, Konesens Development encourages companies to conduct business with a lens to foster greater equity and inclusion.
We know that community and economic development are necessary to establishing and sustaining peace and growth in urban and rural communities in developed countries, as well as in transitioning and emerging economies. A critical step in the process of development is connecting to "the other" and building bridges of understanding.
It is our vision to create and further initiatives that support social stability, and foster economic growth and sustainability, while improving the livelihoods of the most marginalized.
Konesens Development emerged from Konesens Research, a global market research firm founded in 2004 that focused on online research and panel development. As the research firm began to expand its services to include sustainable tourism research in emerging economies and international trade promotion, the logical next step was to form Konesens Development.
Konesens Development is committed to fostering inclusive strategies that further economic development, regional and global trade, increased tourism, and sustainable peace. We are keen to ensure that the projects we work on are created and/or implemented with the intention of enhancing the livelihoods of the most marginalized.
Our communities, cities, and many of the countries where we operate are currently being confronted with the stark realities of inequity. Konesens Development furthers corporate social responsibility and a commitment to our shared humanity by "helping companies do good...better!"
