We believe that respect is fundamental to creating positive and healthy relationships with people from different backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences. We strive to show respect to everyone, treating them with dignity and kindness.
We are committed to being hardworking and diligent in all DEIB endeavors. We believe that hard work is essential to achieving our goals and contributing positively to the community.
Honesty & Integrity
are crucial to building trust and a sense of genuine belonging with others. We are in the process of becoming more truthful and transparent with every interaction (i.e. having hard conversations).
We believe that by keeping an open mind, we can approach new situations with a willingness to learn, adapt, and appreciate different perspectives.
Empathy is a quality that allows us to connect with others on a deeper level. By putting ourselves in others’ shoes, we can gain some understanding the thoughts and emotions of marginalized groups and become better supporters to assist with satisfying unmet needs.
Compassion is the driving force behind my actions towards others. We desire to create an environment that demonstrates kindness and empathy, can make a positive impact and help others feel valued and supported.
We strive to remain persistent, determined, and optimistic, even in the face of adversity and are willing to learn from our setbacks.
