    - Jodi Grant, Executive Director, Afterschool Alliance
  • When it became clear we needed a new strategic plan, we turned to Liz Schrayer. Liz and her team’s comprehensive and interactive approach led us to a clearly defined roadmap that was embraced by our leadership – paving the way for our vision of becoming a political powerhouse in Washington and around the country.

  • When funding for U.S. foreign assistance programs was at risk, the founders of the USGLC had the good sense to turn to Liz Schrayer to organize them into an effective, cohesive voice.  In the years since, the work of Liz and her team has greatly enhanced our efforts, turning the USGLC into a power player in Washington circles.
