Who We Are

Supporting changemakers is at the core of what we do. From transforming our justice system to ensuring education equity, changemakers are doing some of the most vital work there is. Communications is the secret sauce that changemakers can use to succeed in their work to make our communities and our world better. Change Consulting, LLC, works exclusively with nonprofits, foundations and mission-driven businesses to raise awareness, change hearts and minds, and inspire action.

We specialize in helping changemakers identify, create and share their stories for powerful impact. We offer integrated communications, content development and marketing, digital media and earned media consulting services to help changemakers and organizations achieve their programmatic, policy and fundraising goals. Above all, we strive to become close collaborators and invaluable partners to our clients, listening deeply, strategizing creatively, and delivering results continuously.

Change Consulting provides the expertise of Bilen Mesfin Packwood and her team in public relations and marketing, with a particular focus in the areas of criminal justice, immigrant rights, economic equality, women’s rights, reproductive justice and education equity. We are a woman- and minority-owned boutique firm based in Oakland, California, and founded in 2008.
