Community & culture

CF is in it together.  

Our team is as talented as it is thoughtful. Because, well, we’re a team. We cheer each other on (minus the pompoms) and live our values every day: we dig deep to grow our clients greater, do the right thing (especially when it’s the hard thing), and find strength through inclusion. We value the people we work with both inside and outside our office walls—or Zoom or Teams windows, if you will.

It's good to do good

We invest in our community by investing our time. With 16 hours of paid time, CFers can volunteer with organizations and efforts they’re passionate about. Plus, we’re super proud to call these local non-profits our clients:

Taking action

Nope, it’s not just talk. Along with volunteering and donation-based support like matching gifts, CF encourages and funds efforts to fight racism and promote equality. Check out some of our initiatives:

•    Developing a comprehensive guide for brands to support and engage with the LGBTQ+ community

•    Creating and giving away free holiday pronoun pins to make ALL feel welcome at family (or chosen family) gatherings

•    Partnering with Wing Luke Museum of the Asian American Experience to help fight anti-Asian attacks during COVID 
 

EDGE – Empowering Diversity and Gender Equity

Founded in 2018, our EDGE group helps promote and foster a diverse, open and equitable workplace, where everyone can bring their full selves to work, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical ability or cultural background. 

EDGE leads bi-weekly all-agency gatherings, presentations and conversations focused on various aspects of diversity and inclusion, along with open forums to freely discuss issues, challenges and opportunities. 

CF’s EDGE team also conducts our yearly DEI Culture survey and helps set overarching agency goals across DEI categories.

EDGE has provided a space to connect with my coworkers and feel heard, empowered, and celebrated.

600 & Rising: commit to change

We recognize the need for more diversity and representation at our agency and throughout the industry. And we know we must actively create change. 

We are committed to the 600 & Rising initiative to create a more diverse staff and ensure both our agency and work reflects the rich cultural and racial diversity of this country. 

A promise is not progress, though. So we will be publishing our diversity data on an annual basis to be held accountable to our commitments.
