Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Flourishing with difference and determination

Since 2003, we’ve sought to be a more human company. To use the internet to enhance lives and to create a harbor of belonging for people who want to cultivate their craft deeply and substantially. Informed by these values, our mission is to flourish with difference and determination.

We believe great work comes from great people living life to the fullest. This means we must ensure that living a good life is possible. It also means working in an environment that respects each person, their needs, and their growth.

We can better anticipate and respond to new challenges and opportunities with diverse people and abilities. We can better enhance lives, communities, and society through our equitable practices. We introduce exponential value when everyone is included as active contributors.

We’re shaping our organization to represent the world we live in, give everyone what they need to contribute and embrace continuous learning. Doing so fosters the skills, perspectives, and experiences required to cultivate belonging and thrive as a business.

We recognize that as employers and creators, we play an important role in correcting systems of inequalities. We’re committed to reimagining every aspect of our business through the lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

  • How we deliver our craft: We co-design brands and products to benefit everyone. We must ground our strategic method in inclusive design and accessibility practices. 
  • How we engage for impact: We enrich society through the success of the company we keep. We must work with clients who aspire to create the world we want to live in. 
  • How we operate with soul: We cultivate a collective experience of belonging and shared values. We must give people what they need to thrive individually and as a community. 

To support our ongoing progress, we work with a DEI partner to guide us and have a DEI committee with members from our Paris and New York studios. The committee works alongside our leadership team to develop and advance a roadmap directly connected to our core business objectives.
