Looking Back: 25 Years of Community Impact
April 2020, marked the 25th anniversary of Adisa Communications!
To celebrate such an achievement, we have been posting a series called “Looking Back: 25 Years of Community Impact” throughout the month of April on our Facebook page. We thought it would be nice to recap the projects, old and new, Adisa Communications has been a part of since 1995. We created posts for each of the following categories: media outreach and branding, transportation, community involvement, healthcare, and education.

We helped brand a new event and rebrand the existing career fair for Capital Area Training Foundation (now @skillpointalliance). We worked with their existing color scheme and several groups of stakeholders to create a look and feel that worked for everyone.
One major project that Adisa consulted on was the design aesthetic for 183 South-Bergstrom Expressway. Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority sought to engage the stakeholders impacted by the new toll road in Context Sensitive Solutions for its design. As part of the public input process, the team worked extensively with the bicycle advocates to develop safe and effective mobility solutions for cyclists along the corridor.
Adisa led the Community Advisory Committee (CAG) engagement process for the Master Plan of 9.3 acres of newly dedicated parkland at the site of the Holly Street Power Plant as well as approximately 91 acres of existing parkland along the north shore of Lady Bird Lake from I-35 east to Pleasant Valley.
Adisa Communications has spearheaded community outreach, social media engagement and strategic planning for the “Black Mamas Community Collective” (BMCC) since February 2018. The collective is comprised of a group of doulas, medical professionals, and Black mothers who have experienced difficult childbirths. The BMCC’s mission is to reduce the mortality and morbidity rate for Black mothers in Travis County.
In 1996, Austin ISD passed one of the largest school bond programs the state had ever seen. The district needed to fulfill one of the campaign promises of involving local and minority contractors in the construction of the 13 new schools and the renovation of 96 campuses. Adisa was responsible for outreach and facilitation of a series of Community Roundtable meetings designed to cement buy-in from local contractor organizations. Input from these meetings helped AISD design a race-neutral contractor participation program, the HUB/Small/Local Contractor Assistance Program (HUB/CAP), that fostered partnering and building relationships as opposed to mandated participation levels.
We can’t wait to celebrate this huge milestone with all of you once it is safe to do so!
