Karp Randel develops business-driven strategies and programs for corporations, foundations and individuals that advance social change. We advise multinational corporations, technology companies, non-profit organizations, foundations, and sports leagues on strategy, programs, communications and outreach around a number of pressing social issues including education, domestic violence and sexual assault, medical research, and refugees. The partnership between Robbie Karp and Jane Randel began more than 25 years ago when we worked together at LizClaiborne Inc. – Robbie as Head of Corporate Affairs and General Counsel and Jane as Head of Corporate Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility. Our work bond was forged through a series of exceptional circumstances… from allegations of sweatshop abuse to spearheading the Apparel Industry Partnership (now the Fair Labor Association) from defusing protests against brand names and charges of abuse from animal rights activists to serving on the Liz Claiborne Foundation Board and working to end domestic violence… from acquiring numerous brands to selling them off as part of a public turnaround, we accomplished great things. But it’s our commitment to the issues and causes on which we worked that brought us together in our new venture – helping businesses, foundations, and individuals achieve their mission and financial goals while positively contributing to society.
