You are joining a Community of Values
We invite the whole person into the space
and create a container for authenticity to emerge.
We believe in order to create a thriving and resilient community,
all voices and perspectives must be invited to join the conversation.
We thrive because we are diverse and multicultural.
Our meme is innovation through collaboration.
We embody the African proverb:
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
We believe a spark of inspiration has the ability to change the world.
We consciously create an atmosphere of inspiration.
We honor each other’s special gifts and differences
and keep sacred our physical environment.
We value the opportunity to give to our
community and receive from it.
We leverage each other’s strengths and resources
and gain the knowledge we need to effectively
contribute to making a better world.
