Openness and communication are key pillars of transparency. They are essential for building trust inside and outside of the Mriya Report. At every level of the organization, this value means that our volunteers and staff “walk the talk” in expressing straightforward information, communicating solutions to challenges, and sharing pride in the organization’s wins and accomplishments.
This is the measure of how we achieve and explain the impact that the Mriya Report has made towards our mission. From top to bottom, this value requires us to always be good stewards of the resources, which others have provided. We accomplish this through ethical decisionmaking and an iron-clad commitment to best-practices in internal controls, accounting, reporting, and institutional governance.
This value enables individuals from diverse backgrounds to combine their skills, expertise, and talents with others who seek to do this same. The spirit of this value recognizes that no single person has total knowledge, or all of the capabilities necessary to achieve the Mriya Report’s mission on their own. When combined with others, the Mriya Report community is stronger than the sum of its individual volunteers and staff.
5. Courageous Authenticity
This is the act of taking responsibility for one’s actions, while not being afraid to simultaneously take risks when communicating openly, honestly, and respectfully with others. Courageous authenticity is the bedrock of a trust-based community—one where all volunteers and staff can feel confident and safe in working with others toward our shared mission.
