A world where roads are safer for all people
Bridging the Road Safety Gap
We aim to bend the curve on road traffic collisionsRoad crashes are one of the leading causes of death and injuries worldwide -- they don't have to be.
Our Core Beliefs
A group of Stubborn Optimists, we gather a diverse group of forces together to create exponential change.
Act with Ambition
We keep an eye on scaling our work, charting a course of action that goes beyond singular projects to achieve greater impact.
We care about our colleagues’ physical and mental well being; we make an effort to ensure our workplace is a safe environment.
We realize that vision must be translated to action; we are mindful of being scrappy in order to achieve our goals.
We are resourceful in problem solving to advance our mission; we question the status quo in order to improve our effectiveness.
We take time to be inclusive with each other, respectfully share grievances that may be undermining our work and our culture, and avoid hidden agendas.
We work well with our team and members, putting shared outcomes ahead of personal gain; we agree to disagree in a respectful way.
