Organizational Values

These values are the driving force behind our organization.
How we express our values establishes the culture of the organization.

UNITY

In an industry where women are required to be in competition with one another, unity is a powerful antidote. We are each uniquely different, yet unified in vision, values and our love and respect for one another.

Unity is the remedy for division. It is the pathway to peace.

“Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace” Ephesians 4:3

Authentic Community

Authentic community is a powerful agent that facilitates healing, growth, and a sense of belonging in the world.

Knowing and being known by others counteracts isolation. Authenticity in our relationships with one another allows us to be our true self and creates the conditions for us to live with integrity. Transparency and honesty are central to authentic community.

By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. John 13:35

Integrity

“If we live with integrity nothing else matters. If we don’t live with integrity, nothing else matters” ~Unknown Author.

Being who we say we are, and doing what we say we are going to do is of the utmost importance.

The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity. Proverbs 11:3 NIV

Transformation

None of us have arrived. We recognize that becoming who we have been created to be is a life-long journey. We are committed to the process and celebrate the journey along the way.

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2

Celebration & Fun

We work hard, play regularly and laugh often. Celebrating special moments and victories along the way makes the journey sustainable and fun!

Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Psalm 126:2-3 NIV
