Passion & Pragmatism
We are driven by a passion to achieve meaningful, measurable, and lasting social change that is grounded in reality. We take the world as it is in order to help make it what it ought to be. We think big and aren’t afraid to be bold while celebrating the little wins and learning opportunities along the way.
Equity & Justice
In a world plagued with injustice, and a society that has been built on centuries of inequities, our work must start from a place of acknowledging these conditions, committing ourselves to the lifelong journey of anti-racist work, and always centering front line and impacted communities in our advocacy and movement building efforts.
Collaboration & Generosity
We know teams are stronger than individuals, ecosystems are stronger than organizations, and the world’s biggest problems are interconnected. We collaborate with partners across geographies, issues areas, and perspectives that share our deep commitment to achieving real social change and we aim for the greatest collective impact by operating with generosity.
Curiosity & Agility
We approach our work with a lot of questions, an open mind, a willingness to fail and change course, and an eagerness to learn. We know that what got us here won’t get us where we want to be, so we center exploration, innovation, and creativity in our thinking and approach.
Empathy & Respect
Social change work requires an immense amount of passion and energy. This is the work we will commit to our entire lives, which means we have to take care of ourselves and each other along the way. We strive to foster a kind, empathic, and respectful culture internally and with our partners and collaborators to create an environment in which all of us can thrive as people and as professionals.
