What we value
We value our current relationships and create new strategic partnerships to enhance the services we provide for the benefit of all internal and external stakeholders.
We strive to recognize, understand, appreciate and utilize differences to better inform our work while advocating for and practicing inclusion to create better outcomes for all groups.
We hold ourselves accountable to encourage recognition and contribution of all persons and groups to the whole, which results in all members and participants feeling valued, appreciated and fully utilized and having similar chances for successful outcomes and that emphasize the value of cultural pluralism.
We respect one another and hold each other accountable.
We engage in learning as the transformative process of taking in information that, when internalized and mixed with what we have experienced, changes what we know and builds on what we do.*
