Courageous by challenging inequality, stepping forward and making change
Affirming by supporting and inspiring, paying attention to discover what matters
Generous by sharing our skills, creating energetic positive links, and thriving together
Rooted by being secure in our communities, participating and nurturing a sense of belonging
