Our strategic and moral compass.
In all of our work we operate within a set of institutional principles. These provide norms of conduct for our employees and other associates, and are used as a guide when we consider decisions for the Institute.
We believe that we learn the most from those with whom we have the least in common.
Diversity of experience, arising from a difference in cultures, academic and life backgrounds, sparks creativity. It is a fundamental tenet to innovation.
We provide a forum for people with diverse interests and responsibilities to work together and be successful. We constantly strive to promote a culture of participation in which everyone is comfortable, confident, and compelled to voice their thoughts. We place value on lively and challenging intellectual discourse, which is critical to generating new and better ideas.
