We have worked with our team, partners and members to develop the values at the heart of our collaboration. We are committed to working each day to put these values into practice.
We are focused on advancing VAW prevention, with all of our work in service to the violence prevention field and women’s movements. We are committed to being truly responsive to the field rather than promoting an agenda, an individual or organisation.
We strive to be non-bureaucratic, flexible, open and to avoid unnecessary hierarchies while being accountable to the mission, each other, partners and funders. Our energies will focus more on ideas, programming and advancing prevention than building an institution; with roles and responsibilities shifting over time and in response to needs and priorities.
Generosity of Spirit
We assume the best of members, partners, and others. In our words and actions we will demonstrate respect, humility, kindness and solidarity. We see ourselves as learners, recognise that everyone brings something of value and as a group will maintain a growth mindset.
Vibrant and Reflective
We approach our work with energy and optimism. We believe that we must start with ourselves and be committed to our own inner work. We encourage healthy work/life balance and self-care. We strive to infuse creativity and meaning in our interactions and work.
