CO3 for Good gives our entire creative group a strong framework for ensuring accountability and action. The passion Jimi brings to this important role is mirrored by our staff; it has been incredibly inspiring to watch our CO3 for Good volunteers quickly come together as a team despite the physical distance we’re all feeling right now. This collective focus on making meaningful change is already driving progress on both internal and external-facing initiatives that I know will make a real impact."
