About GLLG

GLLG is a nationally recognized workforce development and business strategy consulting firm focused on enabling inclusive leadership to drive business evolution.

As markets began to shift faster and faster, it was evident that the traditional approaches to leadership and business growth simply did not work as effectively as they once did. Based on the need for a new way of doing business both from a human capital and business strategy perspective, GLLG first began consulting with corporations in 2007.

Kim Perez

Senior Writer, Content Strategy

What is she solving for?

I turn chaos into clarity. I take something complex and make it simple. I usually do that with words – I’m a writer who specializes in taking the jumble of ideas in someone’s head and making those thoughts clear. But I also study larger systems, like sidewalks, cities and global migration, to see and understand how people move around.

Background

Kim Dixon Perez specializes in taking something complex and making it clear and compelling, whether she’s writing about genome sequencing for a client or turning Pasadena’s municipal code into haiku for fun.

She writes about healthcare, energy, finance, technology and leadership.

Harvard-trained in sustainability, Perez focused her master’s studies on urban resilience and public health. She proposed and is testing a new way to quantify sidewalk shade using GIS 3D modeling. She hopes to help policy-makers identify where people spend a dangerous amount of time in direct sun, and use that insight to help people remain safe during heat waves, to consider shade when designing for walkability, and to plan for more equitable access to shade across a city.
