About Joshua DuBois

In the White House he brought together community leaders from across the ideological spectrum to tackle some of the nation’s biggest challenges.

I’m passionate about creating partnerships that solve problems. My consulting firm, Values Partnerships, helps nonprofits, foundations and private companies partner with grassroots leaders – faith-based and secular – to meet organizational goals and solve big challenges. That work led me to found Gauge.ai, a tech platform that pipelines the brilliance in communities to top decision-makers at brands, organizations, and other institutions of public life.
