Critical Friends

 “Integrity is when I do what I know to be right, even if no one else will ever find out.” – Aadil

A critical friend is…

A trusted person who asks provocative questions, provides data to be examined through another lens, and offers critiques of a person’s work as a friend. A critical friend takes the time to fully understand the context of the work presented and the outcomes that the person or group is working toward. The friend is an advocate for the success of that work.“*

Here we acknowledge those who have been, in small or large measure, Our Move’s critical friends.  Through their collective and individual contributions they have made this project possible.  Taken together, they have provided a truly incredible level of support and inspiration for the project. Thank you, all, again. (And to be sure, there is always more work to be done.)
