Our values

To achieve the success in our work that the world requires, we believe our work has to stand on values that support our long-term strategy while modeling the world we are working towards.

We are Bold

The climate crisis is immense – we must be daring and courageous in response. We are bold enough to take risks in our work. We are bold enough to name our failures and what we learn from them, to help us be more strategic in the future.

We Listen

We do not have all the answers – we listen to our communities and our allies to learn and evolve together, and we amplify voices that have been historically marginalized.
