Defining Our Values


We turn new and imaginative ideas into reality. We recognize, celebrate, and support the creativity of individuals and organizations.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)

Through the Just Imperative, we ensure that our decisions and actions are rooted in the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion by embracing the unique attributes of all individuals; creating a fair playing field for all; and cultivating environments where everyone feels respected, valued, and a sense of belonging.


We recognize emotions in others and understand and acknowledge other people’s perspectives. We act with kindness and caring, which reflects our recognition and understanding.


We are honest and act with strong principles in all we do.


We actively seek new understanding, knowledge, and skills.

Holding Ourselves Accountable

As we make these values explicit, we aim to hold ourselves accountable to the communities with which we engage.
