“Culture is the soil in which we plant our dreams and cultivate our meaning.

Numbers alone may move businesses and markets to act, but culture is the operating system that guides a community. More than almost anything else, culture shapes our notions of wellbeing. Wellbeing includes objective health measures, like blood pressure and rates of disease. But more importantly, it also encompasses subjective measures, like feelings of hope, trust, and belonging.”
