Innovation Consultant

Our Culture

 

We are a tightly knit team where attitude is as important as aptitude. Underpinning our vision is a shared importance in an inclusive culture and ability to make a positive impact.

 

Radically Inclusive

 

Our vision has always been to build a diverse team. We see this as critical for creating a culture that attracts the best people — whether or not they themselves are from underrepresented groups.

We want to challenge each other’s ideas; when we challenge each other, it sparks new ideas and ensures that the best ideas prevail. That world cannot exist without a diverse team with various perspectives.

As a team we strive to be the change we want to see in the workplace. And the workplace we want to see is radically inclusive.
