We believe in the inherent
dignity of all people.
Around the world, too many people are excluded from the political, economic and cultural decisions that shape their lives as a result of deep-rooted inequality. Challenging that inequality is at the center of everything we do. We invest in individuals, ideas and institutions who are working to build a more just and fair future for all.
