Build a Better World
We give because we can and because we want to.
A little love (and a lot of creativity) go a long way.
The ideas to give of oneself or one’s possessions were never invented. They are an innate part of humanity. We give to share. We give to love. We give to make the world a better place.
But it’s easy for us to forget these simple realities amid the day-to-day chaos we live in. We all need a reminder—and at Rule29, that reminder is our GIVE initiative.
We are committed to GIVE 20% of our time and resources (free or at a discount) to causes, ideas, and initiatives that help create a healthier, more equitable, more sustainable, and more welcoming world. We don’t just support these organizations—we embrace them.
We have also taken a stance internally to build more diversity. Here is our published Diversity Statement:
We want you to be you. Our commitment to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, identity, and experience means that when you work with Rule29, you bring your authentic self to make creative matter every day.
Over the next several years we plan to bring more diversity into Rule29, our board, and whenever possible, the clients we work with. We will promote diverse speakers and authors as options for our writing and speaking engagements as well. We will continue to align ourselves with marginalized communities and support them with investment, participation, our services, and networking. On our networks, including on our podcast DesignOf, we will also share and promote diverse makers, leaders, and initiatives in our world for others to be aware of.
We admit it—our efforts to give aren’t perfect. Many others are doing more than our small group could possibly do on our own. In fact, the more we pursue, the more we realize that giving doesn’t happen in isolation, but rather in collaboration. One of the main reasons we are a Certified B Corporation® is to be a part of a community using businesses as a force for good and to be held accountable for all we stated above as well as for our activities around governance, sustainability, community, and environment.
GIVE is about community. It’s not Rule29’s to keep, but to share. Join us as we give a little, receive a little, and enjoy a lot. Below, and on the sidebar, are a few of our most recent GIVE projects.
