Values and Discourse Principles

Since IMPACT’s inception, its leadership has recognized the importance of shared ethical principles and values.

Download the Guiding Values developed early in IMPACT’s planning process.

Ethical questions are on the minds of people throughout acct, as revealed through our multi-regional research. We recognize that they require constant attention, including within our own interactions and practices.

IMPACT is working on ethical questions by developing a discourse principles guide grounded in ethical principles of related organizations and initiatives. This guide may cover, for example, ways to:

  • Capture and embrace the positive energy in conflict
  • Offer opportunities for participants to express the full range of their identities
  • Honor different cultural conceptions of time
  • Support participants to develop ethical world-viewing skills
