ABOUT US

Our story

By random connections, our founders met in Kaneohe, Hawaii in 2013. Three women from diverse backgrounds, each of us in a transitional phase in our lives and yearning for the empowerment that comes with honoring the value in ourselves and collaborating with others. We hosted a moonlight circle to share with family and friends our shared vision of a movement to equip change-agents and healers from all walks of life with a community of support and the skills to grow good in themselves and their communities.  That conversation grew into a blog. That blog grew into some workshops. Those workshops grew into the non-profit organization we are today.

On inauguration day, 2017, we received our non-profit status determination from the US federal government. We consider it no coincidence that we should receive this validation of our credibility on the same day that the helm of our nation would be passed to a leader who appears to represent the antithesis of the values that drive our work. This contrast only affirms our commitment to empower change-agents to actively move us well beyond the paradigms of cut-throat competition and ego-driven leadership. 

By acting on our mission to inspire, equip and amplify change-agents, we hope to accelerate our emergence into a positive-sum future where diversity, inclusion, equity and systemic thinking are naturally woven into the very fabric of our co-created culture. We envision a future where the systems of disempowerment and disenfranchisement that have plagued humanity and squandered so much creativity and innovation are simply sad notes in history books. Our recent political past has inspired a “resistance” and we seek to fuel the “rising”.  #goodgrows
