Mission, Vision & Theory of Change

Mission

 

We are on a mission to help change agents, networks, and social impact organizations advance climate, sustainability, and cultural change initiatives rooted in deep equity.


Vision

We envision a future where deep equity is widely embraced as a vital cultural value, and the world of work is solely focused on creating transformational solutions to humanity's most pressing challenges.

Theory of Change
 

By leveraging (living) systems thinking to develop greater problem awareness and adaptive learning practices to transform insight into strategy, individuals and organizations can enact solutions that address the root causes of social inequality, injustice, and ecosystem collapse.

By catalyzing a critical mass of culturally competent and socially conscious leaders, we can create ideological momentum for transformational solutions and practices that move society towards right relationship with each other and the living world. 

Frameworks & Methodologies


Our approach builds upon a mix of tested and leading edge knowledge systems including; organizational change, appreciative inquiry, systems thinking, deep ecology, decolonization practices, intersectionality, positive psychology, feminism, nonviolent communication, and consciousness studies.

 

As thought partners, we also trust your tested approaches and stand ready to help you strategize, refine, and scale your culture of practice in a way that meets challenging times and emerging needs. Gratitude to all the teachers, thinkers, activists, and change agents who have shared their bold wisdom and insights with us. This includes partners and clients whom we continually learn with, and grow from.
