A Note from CEO Shannon Adkins

At Future State, we are proud to be a purpose-driven, women-led and employee-owned company that’s been driving results here in Silicon Valley for more than 30 years—through the dot com boom and bust, the great recession, unicorn IPOs, bro culture and beyond.


To be the company we are today, we've had to innovate and transform along with the dynamic forces here in one of the most unpredictable business environments in the world. And we’ve done it while keeping our essential mission and value proposition intact—enabling extraordinary visions that positively impact the world. We are 100% in on the foundational importance of equity, inclusion and diversity in 21st-century businesses. To us, that means diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation and more, but also diversity of skills and backgrounds. We go beyond pedigree and look for people with unique outlooks, fascinating life experiences, and different ways of thinking and working.

These differences are what have led us to a world-class NPS score; they’ve made us a Best for the World company in the Workers category for the past three years; and they carry all the way through to our work with our clients. What I hear from clients is “your teams are different”, “ they care more”, “they are having fun and they are real.” That’s all true, but it’s not by chance—it’s by design. That’s the thing about values. It’s not enough to believe in them, we have to take actions that support them everyday. Here at Future State, our tagline isn’t just about our clients, it’s about our team members too: If you’ve been looking for the right place to take your career to the next level, in an environment that values differences and celebrates diversity, we’re here. Your future state, realized.
