About the Central Penn Business Journal’s Power 100

To identify the Power 100, Central Penn Business Journal’s editorial staff considered “those who make our laws, build our homes and highways, protect our health and safety, educate our children, support the vulnerable, and provide the spark that inspires innovation and economic growth.” Each Power 100 honoree was briefly profiled in the  March 2021 issue – and you can check out Monica’s profile here.

As a dedicated member of the Central Pennsylvania business community for over 15 years, Monica Gould has played an important role in supporting state and local government agencies, nonprofit organizations and private sector clients with Diversity Equity and Inclusion initiatives, leadership development programs, strategic planning, and workforce development training. Her community engagement and tireless efforts to support organizations across all sectors have impacted thousands of leaders in our community who are working to make Central Pennsylvania a better place.

SCP’s Background

After spending ten years at two Fortune 100 companies, Monica founded Strategic Consulting Partners in 1994, and since that time has grown the company into the multi-sector full-service management consulting firm that it is today. “Starting small as a ‘solopreneur’ allowed me to explore the different needs of clients in the various sectors. As consultant, it can be tough to figure out the specific niche to focus on, and the beauty of starting small is that if something doesn’t seem like a good fit, you can pivot and try a new approach,” she said.

In the 26 years since its founding, Strategic Consulting Partners has grown exponentially. Clients now include federal, state and local government agencies, national and regional nonprofits, and corporations. “Our firm has grown and evolved over time by learning and adapting our services to meet current market and industry needs and by striving for 100% client-satisfaction ratings,” she said.

Congratulations, Monica! You are truly an inspiration to all of us. We appreciate and have learned from your vision, perseverance, tenacity and grit. Thank you for all that you do for Strategic Consulting Partners and the Central Pennsylvania Community!
