What is Gravity Research

Gravity Research is a research and consulting business that serves over 100 communications and government affairs executives for Fortune 500 companies. Expectations of how business engages on the hardest issues in society have changed - and achieving success has become more complicated. Organizations today must calibrate action against competing demands and societal pressures. They are often navigating paradoxes, landmines, and opposing stakeholder demands, which offers high risk to the reputation of the business. Gravity Research provides research and analysis that gives our Client’s  a comprehensive understanding of issues that empowers them to make decisions that are best for their stakeholders and business.
