At Our Better World, these 3 values guide us on how we create stories, engage with you and deliver on impact.


Authenticity is being real and honest without fear of being vulnerable. It is not shying away from the bad as we celebrate the good.


Compassion means having deep empathy to identify with another along with a desire to help.


Humility is being the bigger person without thinking that bigger is better. It is thinking of yourself less and more for others.
