We believe people are the most important ingredient for transformational change; we assume good intention and create space for people to show up as their whole selves; we nurture people, relationships and opportunities for collaboration because we know that we are stronger together.
We know that we must be inclusive to have the impact we seek and we know that we have work to do. We will actively pursue diversity in our work, our organization and our outlook; we will hold ourselves accountable to ongoing learning and concrete action to foster equity; we will address our biases, the power dynamics within our organization and in our partnerships, projects and spheres of influence.
We make the best decisions we can with the information we have, openly and transparently; we are guided by respect for ourselves and others, acting with humility, honesty and empathy around strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges.
We see the potential for transformational change within ourselves and stand up to support it in the world, even when it’s hard; we act in spite of our fears, try new things, and acknowledge our mistakes; we show our courage through our humanity, vulnerability, and hard conversations.
We celebrate exploration and experimentation, adapting as we go; we maintain a beginner’s mindset in our work, investing in opportunities for inquiry, learning and growth; we create the space to teach and learn from one another.
We believe that anyone, anywhere is capable of transformational change and that we can achieve it through our actions, small and big; we pursue change through our work and our relationships with abundance, openness, joy and play.
