Four Pillars of Inclusion
Humanity: We recognize each other and meet as equals in the best of our humanity - what exists at the core of us - before relating through roles, status and expertise.
Equality: We relate as equal learning partners in full acknowledgement of what we can contribute and learn from each other.
Wholeness: We are fully ourselves, wherever we are. We are also conscious of the concentric relationship and impact of self to group, group to goal/mission, mission to the world, and the world to all of life.
Collective Wisdom: We know more together than any of us does on our own. We cultivate the collective wisdom of the group by honoring the natural gifts and talents of each and every person.
