Our Values - The Triple Bottom Line

Works Progress is focused on the “triple bottom line” of social, environmental, and financial benefits.

  • Social:  Works Progress seeks to create and participate in a thriving local community. 
  • Environment:  As a neighborhood business, we help reduce your commute, share resources, recycle, compost, and reuse materials whenever possible to reduce our environmental footprint as individuals and as a community.
  • Financial:  We provide the practical workspace, tools for gaining knowledge, and a diverse community of professionals supporting the success of our members.

Inclusivity & Accessible Culture

Works Progress seeks to ensure that everyone feels included, welcomed and a sense of belonging when they enter our workspace. No age, culture, race, gender, or perceived difference should hinder anyone from participating in our community.
