ABOUT US

Our Vision & Mission

Kindred is the community for purpose-driven leaders. Members gain access to a network of hundreds of professionals and renowned experts across DEI and ESG along with resources to navigate today’s most relevant topics for business leaders. We built it because we need it too!

Our mission is to redefine leadership.
It’s that simple.

As business becomes the only trusted global institution, and stakeholders increasingly have greater expectations of corporate leaders, accountability is both the next great disruptor and opportunity for companies and organizations. As leaders are held more accountable, they will need to gain more confidence in their decision-making to transform their businesses as well as their capabilities to withstand every test of accountability. As the stakeholder economy evolves, Kindred provides you with 24/7 access to the support you can count on, when you need it, to help you transform your organization for impact, and meet the needs and expectations of your employees, your shareholders, and the communities you operate within.

Our Team

At Kindred, we pride ourselves on creating an inclusive and flexible workplace.
Our team is made up of intersectional humans who are committed to holding ourselves to the same standards as we do our members.
