Increasing access for all

We’re making big bets that are significantly shifting the future of healthcare—ensuring that patients across the U.S. have equitable access to the full range of birth control.

Our work is driven by the passion and commitment of our dedicated, ambitious team. As we expand, we’re bringing on new staff members to support our vision.

We are hiring!

Our guiding principles

Our guiding principles set the foundation for our work—positively influencing the way we hire, work together, and develop our strengths. 

We hire star performers

We seek out talented people with a strong track record of creating impact. Then, we give them the support they need to do great things.

We act as entrepreneurs

We’re doing something that has never been done before, and there’s no predetermined road map. We learn by doing and adjust course as needed.

We believe in the transformative power of feedback

We actively seek out feedback—from one another, partners on the ground, patients and data. We give and receive feedback with candor, courage and kindness.

We ground our work in strong partnerships

We approach each partner organization with respect and humility, recognizing their contributions to the progress we see today.

We embrace diversity

We are stronger because of our different backgrounds, ideas and approaches. We speak our minds, and we listen well.

We celebrate wins and build joy into our work

Our ambitious results can take years to observe and measure. In the meantime, we celebrate positive feedback and we approach our work with gratitude and passion.

Diversity, equity and inclusion

At Upstream, our work fights back against inequities—particularly those that affect low-income communities and people of color. We embrace that same ethos as we build our team. We champion diversity, build opportunities for equity and strive for a culture of inclusivity that is welcoming to all.
