Black Lives Matter.
Our mission statement makes the claim that we “build resilient people, who come together to create resilient communities, in the service of a transformed, equitable and just world.”
We believe in equity with respect to every dimension possible, including race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, gender expression and identity, ability, class, age, style, spirituality, appearance, health status, language, geography or relationship status. If we’ve left off any dimensions, let us know.
We believe transformation begins within: within ourselves as we break down our own learned biases, and within our organization overall.
We invite our stakeholders - our clients, our employees and anyone with whom we come in contact - to hold us accountable to these ideals, using your lenses, not ours.
We believe justice is not only an end goal, but a practice.
We recognize that we are likely to fall short. We will embrace those moments to improve.
