Innovation in Citizenship
We do citizenship differently. We were the first firm of our size to have a global policy asking all of our people to devote at least 25 hours each year to citizenship as part of their normal work duties. And the activities we participate in are innovative, too. From teaching debating skills to children in the UK, Germany, and Hong Kong to pairing with Baltimore-area businesses to impact the city’s poor; from rethinking sustainability as we refurbish our Washington, D.C. workspace to installing a beehive in our London office – we’re providing value in a new way to our communities and beyond.
The Global Goals
17 goals. 169 targets. 130 indicators. 15 years. An ambitious package for transforming our world. Our priorities, projects, and support align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and we partner with NGOs who take a rights-based approach to development. From gender equality to peace, justice, and strong institutions, the Global Goals will help guide our efforts and ensure that we are working to transform our world.
