relationships. trust. authentic partnership. social connectedness. scientific rigor. integrity.
The core of our work is about creating or expanding intersections and the relationships those intersections are built on: the intersections between people, the intersections between community, systems, research and science. We continually strive to be an authentic partner who helps build trust both through the validity of our materials and the integrity of our actions. We understand that change for enduring health equity requires both patience and urgency and that genuine change process is often messy and uncomfortable. We hold open that space and provide supports for co-creation of not just the easiest solutions, but the best solutions. We believe this unique role offers high leverage opportunity to create enduring health equity in a world where the focus is on health as a “state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” (World Health Organization)
