                   a common goal.

Transparency:          We must actively understand and honestly communicate our biases and ambitions,

Trustworthiness:          practicing our mission, in order to cultivate and sustain trust.

Vulnerability:           And yet, we must also risk our comfort and be willing to trust in others,

Intersectionality:          for the factors that influence health and happiness are myriad and too great for any one organization to solve.

Commitment to Agency:     Indeed, we must support the inherent power of people’s choices and build systems that meet their needs,

Inclusivity:             to ensure that these benefits are available to all people.

Responsibility:           We are responsible for the health of ourselves and all others, and,
