As of today, the Sisu Institute Society has closed its doors. Incorporated in 2011, Sisu Institute was a unique organization dedicated to providing communications and strategy support to organizations working to stop climate change. When invited, we also worked with First Nations. We were never in the news nor on the stage. We chose, instead, to work behind the scenes and use our skills and resources to help others lead the way to a climate safe future.
In the last year our work has shifted. Executive Director Jen Lash began doing more consulting work which seemed inconsistent with the not for profit business model. As such, the Board chose to dissolve the organization and Jen has launched a for profit company called Sisu Consulting.
Why the same name? Sisu is a Finnish word meaning "perseverance in the face of adversity" and we feel this suits Jen perfectly. She will continue to share her years of experience and help others work towards a climate safe future with the same fierce determination but with a new business model.
