Our Vision & Mission

Launched in October 2020, Kindred is the membership built to prepare and support leaders who are building the future of equitable, socially responsible business by connecting them to the community, experts, and resources they need to make better decisions on behalf of their organizations and stakeholders.

Our mission is to build a more equitable society by advancing the actions of today’s leaders.

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 committed and enthusiastic about building a more equitable society and holds ourselves to the same standards as we do our members.
