Our Values
Community and Diversity
We are all interconnected + stronger together through accountability, collaboration, + inclusion. We celebrate differences + acknowledge richness in cultural awareness, global inclusion, + unique gifts.
We envision the world we want to live in; we break away from old, harmful systems + pave a new path forward.
We acknowledge the limited resources on this planet + protect these for future generations.
“The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves + flowers.”
— Rabindranath Tagore
