Looking back, 2017 was a big year for Populus Group: we celebrated our 15th birthday, created some amazing new partnerships, strengthened existing ones, and expanded our community of Climbers (aka employees). We want to thank our community of supporters, partners and leaders; without you, none of this would be possible!

We're looking forward to making an even greater impact in 2018, and we're excited to share some big news with you very soon! As we consider the new stories we'll write in the upcoming year, we also want to take a moment to look back at the ones we've already written.
