On Working at IA

The dominant organizations of the future (and some might say the present) are for-profit companies and corporations. My work at IA is to help make those organizations the kinds of places I would want my child to work -- where human values are an integral part of the new 'bottom line' and sustainability is a source of competitive advantage, not a tradeoff. I also work here so I can be with an innovative group of very smart, very fun people: it keeps me alive!
