Governance and Our Work

The founding and governance documents and structure above are themselves a reflection of our overarching mission. And we view such discursive and structural relations between founding, governance and mission to be essential to the way we conduct our work and achieve benefit, impact and success among the communities we serve. The result, therefore, are three features evident in both our governance and our operations:

01.

Publiks Inc as Corporation

We are a private, independent, global company, headquartered in the US. With a single shareholder and a responsive, trust-worthy board chosen by the President. For efficient, innovative, thoughtful, and nimble decision-making, as well as close adherence to principles of ethical governance and impact.

02.

Publiks Inc, Privacy and Innovation

We have learned through experience that truly ethical and innovative work, toward both corporate and public benefit, requires not just effective communication and transparency, but also the rigorous protection of privacy — for the development and execution of ideas, intellectual property, personnel, planning and problem-solving.

03.

Publiks Inc and Engagement

We thus recognize the important uses of public and private communication in every aspect of our governance and operations, including during our endeavors to meet standards for due diligence, meaningful review, responsiveness as well as protection and safe-keeping. Public and private modes of engagement with self and others are equally vital for us — and essential, too, for our communities of visitors and users, partners and friends as they engage with the publics to which they belong.
