OUR HOUSE CORNERSTONE STATEMENT
A work culture where a sense of calm and safety is cultivated, proactive behavior is encouraged, and reactivity is tempered. Individuals are valued for their unique skill sets, forming a collaborative, team-centered environment where creativity and new ideas are welcome. Communication is honest and open while boundaries are upheld and where each voice is heard. We understand conflict resolution as an inherent aspect of creating this work environment and hold ourselves accountable to this initiative. Together with goodwill we address any conflicts through grace, professionalism, and respect to ensure integrity and confidentiality of process.
We thrive when we are empowered to make decisions, our identities are honored, our experience is trusted rather than micromanaged, and ownership of our personal care is respected. We are committed to the principles of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. Inclusivity is an intrinsic part of our mission, and we hold ourselves accountable to an anti-racist and anti-oppressive workplace. We acknowledge and respect individual communication, work styles, and values. These are informed by one’s culture, family, and full life experience.
Our actions and intentions are heart centered, exemplified by our commitment to working with, listening to, and understanding each other and our community. We nurture humor and a sense of playfulness alongside a deep reverence and respect for the pain of grief.
