Our board and staff represent a range of diverse communities, backgrounds, careers, lived experiences, stories and so much more! We are currently operating within a flattened-hierarchy structure with predominant BIPOC & LGBTQI+ staff.

Consensus building and collaborative decision making
We engage in consensus building and collaborative decision making. We revisit decisions when information and/or context changes. This process creates buy-in; it builds good decisions; and it fosters integrity.
Involvement of those impacted by decisions
All of our programs are deeply rooted in the value of empowering people to have a voice in the decisions that affect them. We strive to be flexible with scheduling and rescheduling so as to include as many voices as possible in the decision making process.
We strive to integrate our philosophy of accountability by paying attention to equity concerns, being mindful in how we communicate, listening with our hearts and minds, being transparent and respectful, as well as addressing conflict as it occurs. This is how we treat people, including each other.
