Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2022

As an organization, we are committed to practicing with a clear focus on equity, inclusivity, sustainability, and civic engagement.
2022 CSR Report Web

In our inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility Report, we reflect on our efforts over the years to practice Bergmeyer's core beliefs while celebrating the significant growth and changes our collaborative has experienced since 2022. We created a new position at the firm – the Director of Corporate Social Responsibility – to reinforce our core values and focus on Bergmeyer's goals of serving the greater public good. We also launched our "B the Change" mission statement to reinforce giving forward as a core part of our Design Collaborative. As part of this work, we grew our community connectivity by increasing our scholarship programs, volunteer opportunities, and community design programs.

"This first annual Corporate Social Responsibility Report describes what we accomplished in 2022 in service to our commitment to using the resources of our organization to enrich and strengthen our communities, to support organizations that advance equity and social justice, to help mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis, and to create opportunity for young people to explore careers in design. We hope that you find inspiration in the many stories within this report and encourage you to reach out to us and share your own stories and experiences with our team so that we may find opportunities for new connections and collaborations around this important work.

As we look toward the future at Bergmeyer, we do so with a collective optimism that fuels our creativity, connectedness, and curiosity, and a self-awareness that allows us to practice with purpose."
