Pyxis Partners: Pathways to Progress
Guided by the belief that trust drives change
Pyxis Partners works at the intersection of policy, advocacy, and engagement.
We tackle the problems others can't or won’t solve. We develop and advance creative solutions to define pathways to progress, anchored in a commitment to improving the lives of others, building communities up, and fueled by a collective passion for lifting the voice of those that have been underrepresented.
Pyxis is a constellation in the Southern sky that represents a mariner’s compass. We chose this small collection of stars to characterize the work we do because we:
Guide clients with a steady hand through uncharted waters and around obstacles on the journey towards their goals.
Understand the constellation of factors that need to be uncovered and connected at the individual, community, and national level to build trust, develop impactful strategies, and advance client goals.
Help clients tell their individual story – like each constellation – and bring it to life to promote awareness, increase understanding, and move people to action.

What We Do
We work with clients as true partners and our team members are personally motivated by their mission and goals. We work as extensions of their organization and through a collaborative, deliberate, and iterative process of strategy development, plan design, and execution that leads to measurable results. We use our skills to tackle complex problems, improve people’s lives, and lift communities up.
We recognize that solving problems and advancing agendas is not always a straight line. There are twists and turns along the way, barriers to overcome, and unknown terrain to navigate. Driving change requires clearly defined outcomes, committed allies, personalized motivation, and building trust.
This is how we create Pathways to Progress.

Engaging Diverse Communities in Research
A cornerstone of the federal government’s Precision Medicine Initiative is the All of Us Research Program. Led by the National Institutes of Health, All of Us is a historic effort to harness the power of data from one million or more Americans to accelerate health research and medical breakthroughs and to help develop more individualized prevention and treatment strategies. Pyxis Partners works as the engagement awardee to the program to ensure that the All of Us participant community that is built is reflective of the diversity of our country.
Change takes time and tenacity. Our team has the commitment, capacity, and courage to advance new and bold ideas. Explore our latest thinking on health equity, affordability, and accessibility.
