The Purpose of dG is about “wholesome organizations.” What does wholesomeness mean to you? 

Wholesomeness means to me that we as people in an organization can show up as we really, really are (freely adapted from Frithjof Bergmann). We want to do our jobs really well, but in doing so we are also human beings with needs, conflicts, and vulnerabilities. We all have our little quirks, and issues/tensions that I carry around as an individual, which also have to do with the organization, should become discussable in such a way that there are no pink elephants in the room and we can move forward together.
