We believe

Corporations have the responsibility and resources to drive climate action at scale.

Changing the system from the inside takes courage, tenacity and ingenuity.

People will ultimately drive the change that’s needed.

We need to challenge business-as-usual and accelerate business transformation.

We need to cultivate the conditions for teams to make progress inside complex corporations.

We need to center people in this work and support their capacity for change.

Workshop was co-founded in 2015 by Anna and Ben Adlard, who are partners in life and work.

Anna and Ben Adlard

Founded by Anna and Ben Adlard, Workshop developed out of a personal decision to change course in work and life. A decade into their careers, they decided to hit reset and move their young family to Cape Town, South Africa (where Ben grew up). This became a formative time to align their work with their values. This exploratory period ultimately sparked the beginning of Workshop. They returned to the U.S and started Workshop. Since then, Anna and Ben have built a thriving company of purpose-driven people committed to climate action.
