Purple embodies Spectrum Knowledge’s mission and vision:


We help you define, refine, and align your purpose with your organization’s purpose.

Spectrum Knowledge features unique initiatives and communities that co-create and deliver specialized leadership development training, research, and consulting. We deliver these through targeted cross-industry summits, communities of practice, and mastermind groups, as well as programs tailored to specific organizations. These intersect the following elements:

TrailBlaze Tools™: The signature TrailBlaze Tools feature complex concepts elegantly visualized and simplified.

Co-Creation: We leverage the collective insights and wisdom of cross-industry partners and experts across private and public sectors.

Specialization: The riches are in the niches as we feature specialized initiatives focused, targeted, and tailored to specific populations. Of course, as specialists, we can deliver generalized deliverables too, but specialization is our passion.

Purpose-Driven: Since our founding in 2002, our tagline embodies our mission, vision — and purpose to make a PURPLE world.

Spectrum Knowledge is the leading partner in the Elevate consortium, which features major universities, non-profit, and for-profit partners. 

Elevate is a multi-university partnership, along with Spectrum Knowledge and the University of California Office of the President—MESA. We cross-pollinate industry and academic innovation for inclusive and diverse leadership. One unified phrase embodies both our mission and vision: 


Elevate helps you define, refine, and align your purpose with your organization’s purpose. 

Spectrum Knowledge is a U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) 8(a) certified company.
