Careers

Who We Are

We live our values. We value each other. This is our culture.

Intelligence, integrity, compassion, and the pursuit of social justice: these are our explicitly stated values, and every day we live them through the work we do and the way we do it. Implicit in our culture are the ways we value each other: we take care of one another and ourselves, we celebrate our successes, and we challenge each others’ ideas and thinking.

As analysts, teachers, writers, advocates, and scientists, we all have roots in different places. In our team-based structure, we use one another’s different perspectives to learn from one another and see the world—and the problems our clients are trying to solve—more clearly. While we find strength in these differences, we rally around what unites us (including but not limited to Bay Area sports teams, a love of snacking, book club, happy hours, and corny jokes), namely: our commitment to using learning and reflection to make our communities healthier and more equitable.

If this commitment drives you, too, you’d fit right in.
