What Does It Mean to Be on Team Human?

In a world inundated with technology, it’s good to remember that being human is a team sport. We are literally all in this together.

For us, being on Team Human means putting people over profit in how we manage our business and our internal team. It means remembering the person on the other end of every email or screen share.

On a larger scale, it also means supporting privacy rights and resisting the so-called “attention economy” that has a divisive and isolating effect on us. It means that all people are equal, but we recognize the biases embedded in our cultural operating system that provide advantages for some groups over others. And it means we strive to be good stewards of the planet we all share.
