Our Principles .

We have a grassroots mindset

All of the Foundation’s work is focussed on serving the realisation of the mission in our countries and our external projects are true collaborations with users and partners. All of the Foundation’s work is focussed on serving the realisation of the mission in our countries and our external projects are true collaborations with users and partners.

We thrive together

We believe in our collective impact working together as a Foundation. We ask questions that go beyond the Change.org platform and we make time to reflect and share with our colleagues.

We are free to create

Fostering new ideas for empowering our users and petition starters is an everyday challenge that every member of staff owns. We are free to decide our strategies and we will be supported to try new things, learning from failures as well as successes.

We are diverse, inclusive, and transparent.

We celebrate the diversity of our countries, staff and users in the Foundation. We are all building an empowering place to work, so all Foundation staff will be involved in the decisions that affect them.

We are impact-driven

As a non-profit, we will always prioritise maximising impact. Wherever possible, we design our work so that the products and value it creates are free, open and commons-based, creating a shared environment for social good.
