We envision a future where…
As the DDP model becomes more culturally competent, we will seek to learn and adapt so that it stays responsive, current and viable within its multiple contexts as it spreads around the globe.
We are committed to carrying out our vision and mission according to our core values.
We will do this in a way that is authentic, accepting of others, fair in its processes and that helps to support every individual DDP journey.
We believe if all of these values are in place, then robust, honest reciprocal communication will emerge and flourish.
We believe in being…
Assuming positive intention, building safety through personal connection, moments of joy and mutual delight, valuing a light, warm tone in our interactions.
Acceptance and respect for each person’s identity and unique story.
When ruptures occur, we believe in understanding the nature of harm, the context of power and privilege that it occurs within and will take responsibility to initiate repair. As an organization we will ensure that there are processes and structures in place that ensure accountability at an individual level and as an organization as a whole.
