Here's to 30 years
Moments & milestones
Thirty years ago, we founded Pyramid so we could team up with the most impassioned people working to make a more just and sustainable world.
This work has only been possible through the power and strength of relationships. Our clients are our partners and guides: community and tribal leaders, nonprofit organizations, Indigenous nations, initiatives, foundations, agencies, and more—all leading the future.
Thirty years later, change is still why we come to work every day.
