Our Culture of Accountability has been built on the foundation that we are each responsible for our behavior, that we “own” our responses to challenges and circumstances, that we are stronger when we work together, and that we will strive to be better every day.

Environment: Wherever we interact with each other.
Kindness: Acting in ways that honor individual uniqueness and trust in the goodwill and good intentions of one another.
