To Our Community

We couldn’t have done it without you – Thank you for banding together this past year. In reflection, 2021 was a tumultuous year all around, but we feel fortunate to have been able to spend it in good company. The B Corp community is resilient and forward thinking always, but in 2021 we were challenged further.

We fully embraced remote work and expanded our benefit offerings to support a staff in and outside of our Portland, OR headquarters. We were pushed to adapt and iterate operationally to continue serving our employees and our clients in alignment with our company purpose, mission, and values.

We leaned into our values and made progress towards our social impact initiatives, and the desire from our team to show up for one another and our communities was unmatched.

We completed our first re-certification, launched a VTO challenge, put time and resources towards supporting non-profits, and hired a leadership and EDI coach to catalyze our efforts.

As Mad Fish Digital approaches four years of being a Certified B Corporation, we are proud to continue to push ourselves. We dream not just of what is possible today, but what can be possible in the future. To fulfill our mission, we seek to be a force for good for our employees, our partners, and customers, as well as the world at large.
