Board of Directors

The Board of Fractured Atlas strongly condemns the structures of racism and bias that perpetuate inequities in the lives of people of color in communities across our country. Today we are reminded once again of the far-reaching and malignant impacts on the health, safety and economic opportunity of Black Americans. We re-commit now to eliminating structures of bias and oppression in our work. As we work to increase the economic, political, and social power of artists and creatives we join with others who see creative expression as part of a just society.

How We Work | People Operations | Shared Leadership | Board of Directors

As of January 1, 2020, Fractured Atlas has no physical headquarters, no home office, no official shared workspace whatsoever. As you can read elsewhere, the organization (for which I’m honored to serve on the board) decided not to renew its lease on its long-standing Manhattan office, instead embracing an entirely “virtual” workforce.

Since we embarked on our new leadership journey, I (in my role as Chair of the Fractured Atlas Board) have been asked a number of times “Why take the risk?” As Fractured Atlas is in the risk business with regard to innovation and services for our members, the better question to me is why not take the risk – it's what we do.  This brief post is an outline of the benefits thus far, as well as an honest admission about what we still haven’t figured out. (My fellow board member Chris Mackie will be writing on the detailed list of what we have yet to resolve and design – this will be a quick pass in anticipation of his contribution which is coming soon.)
