CNPE’s values are simple and clear, and they guide our daily work:

  • Love: We serve, support, challenge, engage, and sacrifice as an expression of care and concern for one another and in the creation of a just, equitable community. Love is the very foundation of all we do.
  • Learning: We nurture a culture of inquiry, curiosity, and study to deepen the reach and impact of knowledge, skills, and innovation.
  • Equity: We lift up the voices of the sector and connect historically marginalized organizations and people to resources that enable them to grow and thrive.
  • Courage: We encourage one another to think differently, to make space for creativity and innovation, and to support the freedom to fail.
