Hmmm, I hate to quibble, since it's an attractive, professional looking
logo, but the immediate thought (at least after reading that comment)
was:

 "Who's the big rectangle?"

The three different sized rectangles don't really convey the idea
of different groups working together on an equal footing. Maybe three
different shapes - square, circle, triangle, say - would convey
that message better?
