Take Charge Involved in strategies
to achieve excellence in State government

Coatesville, PA – Philip Friedrich, Executive Consultant with Take Charge Consultants facilitated a strategic planning meeting for the Board of Directors for Democracy Rising, the leading nonpartisan political education, research, and advocacy group in Pennsylvania. Phil led the Board through discussions that reconfigured and prioritized how Democracy Rising will ensure integrity, value, and transparency in the legislature and how Democracy Rising will provide the leadership needed for citizens to ensure excellence in State government.

Phil stated, “It’s important both for me individually and for Take Charge as a company to be involved in improving the quality of life in the communities in which we work. It gives me great satisfaction to engage in these types of activities and support Take Charge’s mission of helping organizations develop leaders, plan change, and inspire people to get results.”

Ria Hawkins, President of Take Charge, noted “Phil’s willingness to use his expertise to do this type of work outside of normal work hours and at no charge is part of Take Charge’s commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live. I applaud Phil for modeling one of Take Charge’s core values.”
