Our values


We believe that knowledge and practice go hand in hand, and that every system we create should save your organization time, energy or money.


We set a high standard for everything we do, and we’re always striving for excellence in our work.


We’re not into quick fixes; we’d rather build sustainable systems that address the root cause of a problem for good.


We think there are a few pervasive ideas out there in the sector that aren’t serving organizations well, and we’re not afraid to challenge them head on.


When it makes sense to think outside the box, borrow ideas from outside the sector or try something different, we don’t hesitate to get creative.

equity focused

We believe that equity should be built into strategy, policies and procedures from the word go, with a foundation in anti-oppression and anti-racism.
