Build equity.

We acknowledge our privilege and seek to understand how the products we build and the processes we implement impact all people. We take diverse perspectives into account as we make decisions, and we are intentional about the goals and timelines we set in order to build an equitable organization.

Communicate honestly.

We have the courage to seek the truth about ourselves, each other, and the problems we are solving together. We speak with candor and without drama, appreciating direct and actionable feedback that makes us and the business better.
