What Is FAOU?
FAOU is for all of us. That means our strong commitment to our clients is rooted in a larger commitment—our commitment to ethics, empathy, and equity. Many of us came to this work because we know what it is like to be marginalized, to be left out, to have our voices ignored, and to have roadblocks in our paths.
We use our diverse personal and professional experiences to inform our strategies and benefit our clients. We keep our skills sharp, minimize biases, and ground our decisions in data and logic. We extensively research every campaign, every industry, every business, every nonprofit, and every policy that we work on.
Whether they are in the early phases of a startup or are an established leader looking to maintain that position, we are honored to guide our amazing clients on a spectrum of missions with strategies for all of us.
FAOU Strategies is a comprehensive strategy firm. We provide strategic and structural support to not-for-profit and for-profit enterprises and public figures, including political candidates. We consult on politics, government, diversity and inclusion, marketing, public relations, and business. While we do not currently offer legal services in house, as per Illinois law, we even provide advanced logistical support ranging from assisting with filing requirements and serving as a registered agent to notary services and drafting compelling testimony.

What We Do
It’s the first question we get. We get it. There’s no one like us. We aren’t your run-of-the-mill, corporate, PR firm. We see PR for what it is: public relations. Yes, we write press releases and coordinate ad campaigns, but at our core, we are leveraging technology, creativity, and expertise to build ways for nonprofits, businesses, governments, campaigns, and public figures to meaningfully connect with stakeholders and communities to make changes for the better.
