We embrace the self-evident truth of equality and the need for equity, as we want everyone to reach their full potential.
We celebrate our differences and understand the value each person brings to the workplace and our world; we encourage everyone to live authentically and be true to themselves.
We realize we do not all share the same world view and we are not all at the same point on our journeys, so we strive to reach out to others where they are and build bridges of understanding.
We believe in the power of collaboration and that if all marginalized communities stand up for one another, we can achieve equality and equity for all.
We are driven by the knowledge that every person can have a meaningful impact and we strive to empower people with education, training and resources to accomplish their goals.
As an engineer, I always aspired to develop ideas that would not only advance knowledge, but provide people with a chance to make a difference. I started off very focused on technology, then more on team and company building. But thankfully, my eyes have been opened along the way, because it takes a much more purposeful effort to provide real opportunities for people. Especially those who are marginalized or disadvantaged.
