How we work

…with contributors

Thoughtful serves as a platform for talented writers, photographers, designers, illustrators and other creators who want their work to make a real difference in the world and in people’s lives.

Twice a year, we bring together a group of contributors with a fresh perspective on a thought-provoking topic. Through our digital magazine, series of events and outreach campaigns, we inspire even more people to live and work in a way that makes a positive impact.

We may be scattered all over the world, but we do our best to make everyone feel part of the team—because that’s the best way to learn from and collaborate with each other to do world-changing work.

We’re always looking for new ideas. So if you or someone you know might like to be part of the the next issue get in touch.

…with supporters

By providing the help Thoughtful needs to keep its content free, supporters inspire even more creators to make a positive social impact through their work. Thoughtful is built on integrity, so we only work with brands that show the power of business to change the world for the better, and who believe in engaging thoughtfully with our community.

Each issue has a limited number of Supporting Friends, all of whom are acknowledged on the website. Where any are featured as part of the content, this is disclosed on the same page as the story.

All supporter content is written independently by Thoughtful staff, with input from supporters limited to what fits with our vision and values.
