WHY CORTICO?
Our Approach
Centering Equity By Design

In a time of racial reckoning in our country, be part of the solution. Our technology and process offer an alternative to meetings that “check the box” by giving a microphone to the same voices on repeat.

  • Participant-driven conversations create a constructive and welcoming atmosphere that values deep listening and sharing one’s personal truth
  • Participants connect around areas of commonality while experiencing distinctions and differences.
  • Listening is rooted in their own conversation, connected to others through recordings shared in real time or accessed online through LVN.
Moving Beyond “Just Talk”

Getting people to show up is hard. Building their trust and investment will require proof that you were listening.

  • Getting people to show up is hard. Building their trust and investment will require proof that you were listening.
  • Ongoing and deep engagement builds loyalty as community members see their concerns reflected in your reporting, communications and decision-making.
Better Process for Better Results

Throw away that trash can of sticky notes and poster sheets. Our field-tested strategies and human-centered tech will save you time and keep you focused on impact.

  • We’ll work with you to add efficiency and transparency to your public engagement process, yielding the information you need through a process participants can trust.
  • Our platform tracks and analyzes who said what – cataloguing key points while visualizing where comments and broad themes came from. Transparency builds as participants learn from other conversations through audio clips and conversation analytics.
