On Working at FSG
"I work at FSG because we embrace diversity of thinking united by a common goal of positive impact. We face the challenges of the world with hope, ingenuity, and true teamwork. Every day I’m reminded by my amazing colleagues that our job is really a call to service. One of my favorite FSG memories is when a group of us went to see the documentary "Waiting for Superman." We had a follow-up discussion in the FSG Boston kitchen. This powerful documentary raised a lot of questions and ideas. We all opened-up and shared not only our expertise areas, but also our personal stories of frustration and inspiration. This discussion went on to inform projects and blog postings, because at FSG our personal learning and development leads into improving our work."
