We’re Courtney & Kelsey, culture leaders + editors of The Culture People.
We believe that everyone deserves a meaningful work environment that’s inclusive, genuine, and nurtures their potential. Companies often rely on processes or tools to standardize people, instead of finding ways to trust + empower their teams.
We highlight voices that are humanizing the workplace, speaking truth to power, and pushing the status quo of company culture, candidate experience, and leadership.
