How We Work.
We recognize that every project, situation, campaign and initiative is different, so we approach each with the uniqueness and curiosity that they deserve.
As part of our organizational commitment to reconciliation and mending relations, 5% of the revenue from all projects are donated to The Circle on Philanthropy, an organization focused on advancing a future that increases Indigenous led solutions for systems change and increased equity, justice and self determination.
We are committed to supporting emerging leaders and under-resourced groups, so each year we allocate 5% of our billable hours in that year to providing pro bono support and coaching to emerging leaders and under-resourced groups the following year.
A more just and equitable world.
We work to advance equity, justice and social impact through collaboration with non-profit organizations, grassroots groups, charities, activists, local leaders, community groups and policy makers.
We are committed to equity and justice
We believe that reconciliation and mending relations with First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples is our collective responsibility and requires specific and ongoing action by us all.
We believe that joy is important and should be prioritized.
We are committed to a culture of curiosity
We are life-long learners and unlearners
We are committed to being courageous
We believe that a better world is possible
