Diversity and Inclusion Make Us Stronger

Team Is Family

Our team is our second family; we care about each other and do anything we can for each other.

 

Lead With Integrity

We try to lead with our hearts and our heads. We cultivate and celebrate having the courage to make the right decisions, not just the easy ones. We pledge to never compromise on what we believe in.

 

Fun In The Process

“If it’s not fun, it’s not sustainable.” – Paul Lipke, Founder, Sustainable Step New England

Fun nourishes and uplifts. Playfulness inspires and binds us. Humor keeps us amused and humble.
