We operate from an acknowledgment and declaration of interconnection. Our strength and success derives from each of us individually and collectively taking responsibility for the whole.


We are intentional and thoughtful in our interactions and in our choices. We listen deeply to one another, choose our words with care, and take actions that serve each other and the common good.


We ground our actions and words in honesty, compassion and dignity. We aspire to excellence and accountability in all we do.


We are committed to lifelong learning. We examine our positions and assumptions to discover new perspectives and ways of being. We strive to be open, to receive coaching, and to respond effectively to feedback.


We make decisions with reference to our past, present, and future. We honor and learn from the elders, align with our principles and values, and consider the impact of our choices on future generations.
