Our Manifesto

EVERYONE DESERVES GREAT MEETINGS

Meetings are the lifeblood of the modern organization and they've been terrible for too long. At Filament, we're focused on making meetings better for everybody. This is our manifesto.

WE INSPIRE

By doing different things better, we inspire others to bring that "different" from Filament into their work and their home. We promise your time at Filament will be the most inspirational and interesting thing you've done in a long time.

WE INCLUDE

We value people for who they are and the perspectives they bring. We believe meetings are best when we leverage our differences to achieve a common purpose.  We promise Filament is a safe space for diversity, not divisiveness.

 

WE BUILD

We constantly create, write, draw, facilitate, design, practice, and revise. Our commitment to creation makes our methods, activities, agendas, tools, and games look better, feel better and -- above all -- work better.

WE BELONG

We are becoming a great citizen of Saint Louis, focusing our efforts on being the indispensable partner to non-profits and change-makers doing work that matters and making our city better.

 

WE SIMPLIFY

We know the time and attention of our customers are their most valuable commodity, so we refuse to take more of them than necessary, making our services, tools, events, and offerings as easy to use and as simple to buy as we can.

WE SHARE

We give away the things we uncover, never prioritizing commerce over collaboration. By sharing our best work, we become curators of a community of amazing practitioners who will, in turn, give their best work back.  The money will flow from our giving, but never guide it.
