Brian guides Hopelab’s efforts to create a productive and meaningful workplace where people feel excited to come to work, are energized by our mission, and live our organization’s values. He is inspired (and humbled) by this poem by Hafiz: “The small man builds cages for everyone he knows. While the sage, who has to duck his head when the moon is low, keeps dropping keys all night long for the beautiful rowdy prisoners.”
We’ve always been deeply committed to keeping the voice of teens and young adults at the center of our work. This spirit of co-creation is our belief that we will only succeed if we include teens and young adults in the innovation process.
