An Empowering Culture

There are no ordinary people. Every person has something unique to offer the world.   

Our management philosophy empowers employees to think and act like entrepreneurs working together toward a shared vision. We use a framework called Principle Based Management (PBM) that encourages each employee to innovate, improve, and transform not only their work, but themselves.  

Principle Based Management is rooted in a belief that people are capable of extraordinary things. We want everyone to live a life of meaning and to realize their unique potential. PBM is the framework our philanthropic community and employees apply to succeed by helping others improve their lives. 

You can thrive in the PBM culture if you: 

  • Embrace and drive change 
  • Seek knowledge to help you learn and improve your thinking 
  • Enjoy collaborating with people of diverse perspectives 
  • Get excited to take initiative and solve problems 
  • Are committed to the approach of doing well by doing good  

We Celebrate Diversity 

We believe every person is capable of extraordinary things. We value the unique skills and attributes of each employee because we recognize that real progress only comes with humility and an openness to new ideas. History shows that progress in society rarely springs from a single mind alone. Instead, it is best achieved when individuals with diverse perspectives stand together to work toward a common goal. 

That’s why in our work, we intentionally bring unique perspectives together around a shared vision of helping every person rise. These perspectives are shaped by a multitude of factors, including race, gender, ethnicity, lived experience, education, and much more.  

Because we recognize that personal experience informs our perspective and, ultimately, our point of view, we don’t go through the motions of inclusion. We live it, every day. Each employee is accountable for embodying and fostering the values of integrity, respect, and humility. We are committed to listening and learning how to ensure our workplace and communities are places for open and respectful discussions that can advance meaningful change. Our values are not just words on paper, they are what we live by and hold each other accountable to.  This approach offers our team a fulfilling workplace and a diverse professional peer group dedicated to making our country a better place. 

Because every individual has extraordinary gifts, we believe that together we can transform how we tackle our nation’s greatest challenges to help every person rise.
