We believe in:
We met over 10 years ago, and recognized that despite very different work settings, we share mutual interests. Through the years there were spirited discussions about systemic bias, labor markets and addressing inequity. We shared progress on our projects and desire to have greater impact. The pandemic highlighted challenges of small business owners and the importance of community. We decided to focus our time differently. In 2021 we joined forces to turn theoretical ideas into practical tools and deploy them into the community.
