We believe effective policies and programs emerge when individuals and groups with diverse views and backgrounds work together in a fashion marked by civil discourse and integrity that promotes trust.
Our work and our organization are stronger when people with a range of identities, perspectives, and experiences have full and fair opportunities to inform, participate, and lead.
We value opportunities that come from listening and continuous learning and believe positive change for all is possible.
We base our work on relevant peer and patient experiences and sound evidence regardless of affiliation or ideology.
Improvement occurs when people gather, maintain, and use their authority, influence, and assets for the greater good.
