MEET THE TEAM

"Believe there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Believe that you may be that light for someone else.” - Kobi Yamada, What to do with an Idea.

Lead with respect

Respect is at the beginning of everything. Without respect there is no curiosity, there is no benefit of the doubt. 

walk-the-talk

We believe that we ourselves must follow our own advice. That's why we hold each other accountable to uphold team health, self-care, and fulfillment. 

Boldness

We believe and hold ourselves accountable to naming the elephant in the room, and to be bold in imagining a different reality

impact commitment

We are committed to measuring our impact and ever-improving the quality and depth of our work. This takes collaboration, organization and determination. 

transparency

We play cards on the table. We believe in thoughtful transparency that puts curiosity & vulnerability at the center of our interactions.
