Vision

 

Our Vision

Agami inspires and enables ideas that solve the biggest challenges in law and justice. Ideas that expand and democratize access to legal services, and help the sector in its journey towards becoming more inclusive and just. Ideas that represent the optimistic voice in a sector which has historically been insular and change averse. At Agami, we curate and catalyze such ideas that go beyond the constraints of the system and become solutions that scale to achieve impactful results. And we do this with a mindset of collaboration, abundance and transparency.  We hope that when we are done, the law and justice sector will no longer be seen as archaic, opaque and insular, but a robust, thriving eco system that provides efficient, affordable and timely access to legal resources for all. Over the course of year and a half, we have launched multiple initiatives towards achieving this such as the Agami Prize, Agami Summit, and a series of innovation challenges to trigger innovation towards big opportunities for impact - the Agami E-ADR Challenge and, more recently, the Agami Data for Justice Challenge.

Our Beliefs and Values

Given the autonomy, environment and opportunity, we believe everyone has the innate desire and ability to lead change for the good of all.  We believe that we can create a radically different future and grow as individuals only if we have the courage to step into the unknown. We also believe in bringing our authentic selves to work, because it enables everyone’s wellbeing. Most importantly, we believe that a childlike inquiry into problems and opportunities is enriching, fun and sustainable. 

To this end, we strive everyday to practice these values:

Courage 

  • We lean into fear, let go of the safe and familiar, and explore the unknown.

  • We question actions inconsistent with our mission.

  • We make smart, tough decisions and are open to learning from what doesn’t work.

  • We take on tasks that we haven’t done before.

Responsibility

  • We exercise our agency to act with open accountability.

  • We take responsibility for our part in both a problem and its solution.

  • We lead and follow with an equal generosity of spirit.

Authenticity

  • We bring our honest, vulnerable self to work daily.

  • We accept failures and successes with equal humility.

Compassion

  • We listen with empathy, and act to help those around us.

  • We don’t judge, and trust others for their skills and decisions, as they trust ours.

  • We inspire positivity and steer clear of gossip and negativity.

Serious Play

  • We bring spontaneity and intuitiveness to our work.

  • We live our passion day in and day out.

  • As we turn solemn, we find ways to play again.

We subscribe to these values as authentically as we can, and aspire to achieve them to their fullest potential a little more everyday. 

Just as these values are to be embodied by team members, so does the organisation aspire to these by putting in place systems and processes that align with them. These include:

  • Attracting  people to the team who align with our beliefs and values and letting go of those who don’t.

  • Embracing authenticity by being transparent in decision-making, financial processes and sharing feedback openly and promptly.

  • Having flexible timings and work from home policies that trusts the team to be responsible.

  • Inviting everyone to openly share their ideas, agreements and disagreements, to achieve what is best for the organisation. 

  • Enabling leadership with opportunities to learn and grow at every step.

Together, we enjoy what we do and do what we enjoy. Team hangouts and rounds of Taboo keep us from taking ourselves too seriously and acing stand-up comedy is an ongoing endeavour for many a team members.
