I love that ON is continually questioning and challenging how to best show up as a partner, as a funder, and as an advocate. Between dedicated internal spaces for discussion around topics like systems thinking and watching my colleagues build partnerships grounded in transparency and respect, I feel inspired and enabled to also challenge myself to grow as a colleague and partner. This commitment to learning and deep engagement encourages us to create innovative and multifaceted strategies to enact change, which has pushed me to develop my thinking around long-term impact, my ability to draw connections between organizations and issues, and approach work with boldness.
