Both as a team and as individuals, WhyWhisper leverages its people, profit, and product to better our world. Here's how:
Each year, we give 5% of profits to causes that roar against injustice when others have whispered. Additionally, we hold an annual meeting to discuss personal donations and learnings, so as to encourage a culture of philanthropy, both as a company and as individuals.
As a team, we offer one pro bono workshop each year, and as individuals, we commit to one volunteer activity per quarter.
We work with our clients to better the world.
The end outcome of every client engagement is measurable impact.
We're committed to diversity.
As a proud woman-owned company, we actively work to foster diversity in the workplace.
We promote and celebrate kindness.
Our team members report weekly on an act of kindness, be it one they witnessed or in which they actively played a part.
We practice mindfulness.
The first minute of our meetings is set aside to clear our minds and center ourselves.
We avoid printing, but if printed materials are requested, we print double-sided documents on recycled paper with vegetable-based inks. We work remotely, cutting down on unnecessary emissions. We use reusables during meetings. We responsibly recycle paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, metal, and electronics. When buying products and choosing suppliers, we select them based on their commitment to diversity and sustainability, striving to stay local and support underrepresented populations whenever possible. We surround ourselves with plants and greenery.
