Beliefs that are shared among the stakeholders of an organization. Values drive an organization's culture and priorities.
These are clear in everything you do, how you operate. Articulating values provides everyone with guiding lights, ways of choosing among competing priorities and guidelines about how people will work together.
A values statement reflects the core ideology of an organization, the deeply held values that do not change over time. It answers the question, "how do we carry out our mission?" Values are what your organization lives, breathes and reflects in all its activities.
These serve as guidelines for our conduct and behaviour as we work towards our vision :
- Our focus is on the people we serve (cancer patients, their families, donors, and the public) and we will strive for excellence through evaluation and continuous improvement.
- We are committed to serving with empathy and compassion.
