Hello Increment readers,
This issue is all about teams—building them, managing them, supporting them. And, because autumn in New York City always makes me a little sentimental, I’d like to dedicate it—and this letter—to the team that makes this magazine every quarter.
The Increment team is a group of editors, designers, and producers who come together day after day, month after month, and (for some of us!) year after year to work toward a common goal alongside our many contributors.
We’re a team with very different experiences, stories, and sometimes priorities. Like most teams, we don’t agree on everything— but we encourage and respect each other, and we rally around making something meaningful for our readers. (Also, if we weren’t distributed across such a distance, we’d probably get more pizza together.)
Being on a team you love to work with—that pushes you to do your best work, that centers trust, balance, support, and collaboration—is a special thing. And it’s an achievable thing, if you’re willing to put in the work.
Here’s to what teams can be. And to the Increment team: Here’s to you. <3
