Our values collectively define the essence of our organizational culture. They also serve as guidelines for how we collaborate with our partners to create a world where everyone feels safe.
Dismantling all forms of human oppression is integral to breaking cycles of violence. We believe systemic racism and other forms of oppression are a pervasive form of violence, which limit the opportunity to achieve human potential. We have the scientific and ethical duty to ensure equity and justice are the cornerstones of our work.
We dedicate ourselves to using our skills and expertise to dismantle all systems of oppression so that everyone can achieve their full human potential.
We use the highest scientific standards in our research and evaluation, and in the programs, practices, and policies we recommend.
Collaboration and Partnerships
We encourage diverse perspectives and value the lived experiences of our partners, understanding that local expertise is necessary for creating relevant and sustainable solutions.
We tailor interventions to meet the needs of the local context. We create feasible, actionable solutions that respond to complicated, real world problems.
We strive for excellence and are continuous learners at heart. We anticipate changing circumstances and embrace opportunities to grow and improve.
Well-Being and Human Potential
We realize preventing violence starts with ourselves. We prioritize well-being and human potential and cultivate a culture of wellness, support, respect, and fun with our colleagues and partners.
