Our Values for Working Together as a Collective

  • Integrity

We value the importance of clarity of communication; we say what we mean, we mean what we say and we honour our word.  We build on a foundation of mutual respect amongst the group, as well as respect for our stakeholders and service beneficiaries.  We ensure confidentiality at all levels.  We commit to taking action that aligns with our values.

 

  • Inclusivity and Diversity

We value the voices of all Bermudians and residents of Bermuda.  We ensure that equitable representation across our diverse population drives our processes and decision making.

 

  • Open-mindedness

We strive to create a safe space where all contributors and stakeholders are respected.  All opinions, thoughts, ideas and questions are valid, and are considered in a thoughtful and intentional fashion.  We listen carefully in a non-judgmental fashion and we explore all ideas in a flexible, solutions-oriented manner.

 

  • Shared responsibility

We commit individually to following through on tasks for which we take responsibility.  We commit collectively to holding ourselves and one another accountable for our collaborative efforts and for our individual tasks.

 

  • Commitment to the value of the sector

The value of our entire sector, and all the organisations represented therein, is at the heart of our activities and our efforts.  No one individual’s self-interest, or the specific interests of any one organisation will be given precedence over that of any other.  Our work is on behalf of, and in the best interests of, the non-profit sector in its entirety.
