The WEO commits to a
strongly values-based
approach to everything we do.


We cultivate trust and loyalty by acknowledging truth, showing respect for every person, honoring our word, demonstrating gratitude, and taking responsibility for consistency of conduct and refinement of character.


We promote universal fairness and equity through balancing the rights and needs of every individual against the welfare of the community, showing grace, and working to find common ground.


We strive to do our best through continuous improvement, discipline, creativity, and accountability.


We commit to benefiting others by developing the qualities of kindness, empathy, compassion, selflessness, collaborative engagement, and commitment.


We build diverse and inclusive communities that foster deeper understanding and commitment to collective action through civil discourse, intellectual humility, and constructive disagreement.
