Guiding How Serve

As an organization, we hold these values at the forefront of our work:
  • Equity: We confront barriers to access and dismantle the inequitable systems that have allowed those barriers to exist.
  • Integrity: We make decisions that hold true to our values over all else, even when decisions are hard.
  • Curiosity: We seek clarity and understanding in order to learn from each other, our partners, and the world around us.  
  • Courage: We lead with honesty, authenticity, and trust.  
  • Collaboration: We recognize that no one person must be the knower and doer of all things.
