We have an ambitious goal: 1 million redemptive businesses, 3 million jobs, and 15 million people leaving poverty behind by 2030.
Reaching this goal will take the support of our network and a strong team that is positioned to equip our partners around the world. That’s why we’re excited to share our recent staffing updates with you. Here are the ways new roles and new staff members will work toward our shared vision of a world where everyone can flourish—and how you might be the next person to partner with us.
