  • RESPECT all people regardless of differences.

  • Be INCLUSIVE – not discriminating based on sex, age, creed, religion, race, political affiliation, economic status, or sexual-orientation.

  • Demonstrate HONESTY in our words and action and TRANSPARENCY of our finances and intentions so that we inspire TRUST and cooperation

  • Work to create SAFE ENVIRONMENTS/SPACES for all people, especially children and the most vulnerable of society.

  • Be GOOD STEWARDS of our environment, resources, finances, and time

  • Create a LEARNING ENVIRONMENT which allows for mistakes and failures as part of the process of learning and which focuses on ENCOURAGEMENT and POSITIVE reinforcement to stimulate learning, change, and progress.

  • Express GRATITUDE so that we focus on appreciating people, intentions, and the positive contributions and opportunities available

  • Maintain OPEN COMMUNICATIONS so that we fix problems, address issues, and clarify actions to help create understanding.

  • Initiate HOSPITALITY to make everyone comfortable and encouraged to participate

  • Show EMPATHY to understand and be in SOLIDARITY with those whom we work
