The significance of the Fourth Wave Strategies name is fourfold:

  • Waves can be defined as “surging or progressing movements”. Social impact often occurs through grassroots movements that create waves of change.

  • Not satisfied with the status quo, Shanda is a natural disruptor who loves to make waves.

  • Shanda launched the company when she and her partner, Brett, took a literal and figurative leap and relocated to Maui, Hawaii to start the next wave of their lives and careers.

  • The Fourth Wave of Business/Capitalism has been described as a time when business will be transacted authentically through the creation of sustainable, profitable and purpose-driven enterprises with leaders who embrace an attitude of global leadership.


Fourth Wave Strategies helps clients develop and execute strategies and programs that align with their values, meet the needs of stakeholders and maximize social impact.


Our clients don’t ride the waves of change, they create them.
