In 2022 we reconfirmed the “rightness” of the path we set ourselves on— to operate our organization according to shared principles and a greater purpose beyond just profit.
It was a year that saw us evolve and improve, albeit in different ways than we originally planned. We assessed and prepared for a new business partnership, fine-tuned our co-leadership approach, and enhanced our power distribution to create more balance. As we reflect on the year in our annual report, some other highlights we’re proud to share are:
B Corp 100s club
We remain committed to our mission of helping conscious companies tell their story in a meaningful way. When we submitted our third B Corp Recertification application at the end of 2022, our score jumped from 92 to 112! Since first becoming certified in 2016, we’ve grown as a team and as a business. This recertification demonstrates that we continue to move in a positive direction.
26 new sites and rebuilds
Our work is the best way we — as people who write, design, code, and manage websites — can positively impact the world. It is fulfilling on a fundamental level to use our skills for good. We had the privilege of collaborating on 26 exciting new sites and rebuilds over the course of the year, including an award winner!
Exploring new solutions
In 2022, we continued to explore CMS solutions beyond WordPress. The world of web development constantly changes, and it’s our job to consider new options, so we can thoughtfully advise our clients on the best platform for their projects.
We also explored several models of equitable compensation for our team members as part of our larger effort to strengthen our organization’s commitment to justice and equity.
Our goals for 2023
Creating our annual report isn’t just about looking back; it’s about setting a roadmap for the future and holding ourselves accountable. In 2023, we’re measuring our progress against a series of annual commitments and specific objectives. This includes the development of the MB Studio Fund scholarship to support more BIPOC students, enhancing our Make-It-Accessible tool, and helping our clients meet accessibility standards with a comprehensive accessibility review of all client sites on maintenance.
