Manifesto

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 aspire to be a great citizen of Saint Louis, focusing our efforts on becoming an indispensable partner to non-profits and change-makers doing the work that matters.

 

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 the things we do as easy to use and as simple to buy as possible.

WE SHARE

We will never prioritize commerce over collaboration because we believe that we share our best work, we contribute to a community filled with amazing practitioners.  The money will flow from our giving, but never guide it.
