Two well-known communications experts in the progressive non-profit and labor organizing world, Matt Richards and Jodi Hirsh, have joined forces to found Sequal Consulting, a full-service communications firm with an eye for technology and a heart for social and economic justice.

Previously, Hirsh was the founder and principal consultant at JustAction, LLC, a consulting firm for non-profit and political organizations, where she specialized in strategic communications, issue advocacy, and legislative strategies. She was also Pittsburgh City Councilman Dan Gilman’s Director of Communications, and spent thirteen years as the Vice President of Public affairs at Planned Parenthood of Western PA. Richards was the founder and principal consultant at Informed Communications, where he helped non-profit organizations and labor unions utilize data and technology to drive modern communications. Before that, he was the Director of Communications at SEIU Healthcare PA.

Richards and Hirsh formed Sequal Consulting to help small and mid-sized organizations innovatively design and disseminate their messaging and effectively utilize back and front end technology to take audience engagement to the next level. Their combined years of experience, professional skills, and unwavering commitment to equality and justice make Sequal Consulting the go-to solution for organizations tackling critical issues like affordable housing, family-sustaining jobs, access to childcare, equitable economic development, community-building, justice, and fairness.
