Who We Are

At Gagen MacDonald, we are dedicated to helping organizations navigate the human struggle of change.

We are a people-focused consulting firm and our passion is improving the employee experience — for everyone. For more than 20 years, we have been working with companies to create clarity from chaos by uniting employees across all levels around a single vision so they can achieve results and realize their future.

A certified woman-owned business, we have been a pioneer in bringing humanity to strategy execution, leading in areas such as organizational communication, culture, leadership and employee engagement for two decades. Working with some of the world’s most complex and admired companies, we have forged a cross-disciplinary approach to both change and transformation that has a unique ability to translate ideas into actions and goals into results.

We are differentiated, not just in our skills and capabilities, but through our approach. We work in a spirit of true partnership and our goal is to bring not only critical thinking, good ideas and execution support to our clients, but a sense of joy and positivity, too. We want to be a source of energy and help instill and reinforce the belief that your ambitions are achievable.

As a woman-owned business, we believe strongly in creating a diverse and inclusive work environment. We are always seeking to meet curious, catalytic learners who are excited by the unknown and passionate about the role large companies can play in shaping a better world. If that describes you, we hope you’ll be in touch.
