It Is Past Time For Meaningful Change

It is long past time to take meaningful action to root out systemic racism and injustice in America. The horrific killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless others over many years make that clear. 

We know that we do not have all of the answers. But, we do know that as a society, we haven’t done enough. We haven’t educated ourselves enough. We haven’t gone far enough in examining our actions to determine their unintended consequences within marginalized communities. And we haven’t done enough to create organizations free of prejudice, discrimination and bias.

We will do our part to bring about meaningful change. As a majority women-owned business we have always felt a profound responsibility to drive change, and we will continue to take a sober look at our own culture and environment to identify racial bias and discrimination and work to address it. We are actively listening and learning the best ways to support our colleagues and fellow citizens as they endure the unspeakable pain of being marginalized due to the color of their skin. And we intend to support communities in which we have a presence through civic engagement at the local level. We are also continuing our work to bring more people of color into our senior leadership team and onto our board.

We are a global company. The challenges we are facing in the United States today are paramount in our minds, but our work to champion equality and to stamp out institutional racism wherever we see it does not end at the United States border. We commit to doing this work around the world. The road ahead is long, but it will be shortened if we are steadfast and remain committed to continuing to do our part. We are still learning and welcome outside voices and partnerships. We must do better. We will do better.

What people are saying.

With the great help of APCO, Rosi became known nationwide. On social media, APCO engaged all participants and implemented an excellent, authentic and interactive communications campaign. Connecting emotionally with potential donors created a special community that generously supported our initiative.

Founder of the Rosi Initiative

Margery Kraus has spent her life showing up where people least expect it, always bringing fierce determination to the table. Through it all, Margery learned that for every time someone assumes she can’t make a dream a reality, there’s an extra power in proving them wrong.


The ability to help clients solve their thorniest public policy challenges is one of the things that sets [APCO Worldwide] apart from anyone else of its size and scale.

Corporate Consultancy of the Year – 2019 EMEA SABRE Awards

One of the great things about APCO and our people is that we’re never satisfied with the status quo. We’re constantly asking ourselves how can we improve, what we can learn from others and how can we creatively solve problems for our clients. This is one of my favorite things about our global team.

APCO’s COO Greater China

It was critical for us to execute a data-driven campaign. APCO was our chosen partner, there every step of the way, and the approach was smart and strategic.


In an environment where clients need issue-based guidance along with brand stewardship, APCO’s political savvy has become more sought-after than ever.


For me, what really makes APCO unique is its people. When you come into an APCO office, you see a level of passion and an energy level that you don't quite see anywhere else. The diversity of the people and the complexity of the work that we are involved with keeps the energy going.

APCO’s President, MENA

APCO is unique as an independent public affairs firm. They take a very creative approach to problem solving for clients. I was very pleased with the work that APCO did for me, as a client, and for my companies.
