Inspired at L.E.K. Consulting

During my time at L.E.K., getting involved with Inspire has been one of my most rewarding experiences. Inspire is a national, non-profit consulting firm run by associates from Bain & Company, The Parthenon Group, L.E.K. Consulting, and Deloitte Consulting that offers affordable consulting services to non-profits looking to achieve greater social impact.

Inspire at L.E.K. completes multiple projects per year, with case teams of 4-6 associates, as well as a case team leader. Over the course of 3-4 months for each project, we're able to provide associates the opportunity to accelerate professional development, gain exposure to new industries and challenges, and make an impact in our community.

What is great about Inspire is the ability to work on a high impact project and engage with community leaders. With a busy work schedule at L.E.K., Inspire provides a great opportunity for significant community service that is supported by the entire L.E.K. office, and allows associates to take on greater responsibility. 

We've worked with a variety of different clients - from Citizen Schools and public or private schools all over the country to Special Olympics organizations and The Sharewood Project. Similar to L.E.K. cases, we help our clients with any problem they might have, including growth and expansion strategies, program development, or financial planning and modeling, among others. In a current project, Inspire is helping Special Olympics of Massachusetts improve their volunteer retention. We’re engaging with current volunteers and other Special Olympics organizations to understand best practices and provide recommendations for the Special Olympics of MA organization moving forward.

Being a part of Inspire is great because in every way, it has allowed me to utilize the skills I’ve gained through my work at L.E.K. to help organizations in the community achieve their missions. Anyone can get involved in Inspire! Whether you want to be on an Inspire case team, help with Inspire trainings or organize fundraising, we’re always looking for more volunteers. It has been a meaningful part of my L.E.K. experience, and it’s a great initiative supported by people at all levels of L.E.K.
