OUR VALUES

Courage

  • To step into the unknown, and into possibility, without having all the answers
  • To hold steady in the face of both the seductions and threats of the status quo
  • To stand up when others can’t (or won’t)

Empathy

  • To see yourself as part of a larger whole
  • To burn for justice
  • To sense common ground when difference threatens

Changemaking

  • To build, not (just) critique
  • To scale the walls that stand in your way
  • To deploy not just skills and knowledge, but all parts of you

Global Mindset

  • To navigate different contexts, locations, and timezones
  • To see the hidden connections between people and ideas, and build new ones
  • To catalyze impact across both perceived and actual boundaries

Vision

  • To see what is not, and ask why not
  • To look beyond your own position and identity to see what you can do
  • To set a new direction, for self, organization/ community, and planet
