Core Values

Our core values simply reflect who we are and what we care about. They shape the culture of our firm, support our long-term vision, and drive decision-making. We believe it is not our values alone that make us unique, but how we operationalize them that makes for lasting impact. 

Equity and Inclusion

We are fully committed to doing work that advances our vision for society: one where the conditions allow everyone an opportunity to contribute, have a say in the decisions that affect them, and prosper. To achieve this, we believe it requires eliminating barriers that lessen a person’s chance to thrive due to their gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, immigration status, neighborhood, or income level.

Integrity of our Work

We are committed to ensuring all of our work is carried out with transparency, forthrightness, confidence in its impact, and an underlying belief that solutions often live in the communities where the problem exists.

Invested Leadership

As a firm, we are dedicated to building and sustaining a team of leaders pursuing a just and equitable future – not only imagining what it looks like, but also doing what it takes to get there. Our team members utilize their learned experience, knowledge of effective tools, and ingenuity to help our clients engage, learn and grow.

Rooted in Community

We strive to work in a spirit of solidarity – both formal and informal — with community-based organizations and leaders on the ground. We see these relationships as critical in our ability to provide clients highly informed, aligned, and strategic support.
