Our Ada SECRETS are the ways we expect to treat one another and what our Adies and community partners can expect from us. Now you’re in on our SECRETS!
We prioritize service to past, present, and future Adies.
We understand and acknowledge that the world is full of inequalities. We approach and measure our work with a focus on equity and social justice.
We care for one another. We cultivate a compassionate community where people feel safe to bring their authentic selves to Ada.
We encourage questions and feedback as a sign of interest. We work together to refine ideas and build something great. We assume best intent.
We experiment and iterate for continuous improvement. We understand that failure demonstrates conscientious effort and is an opportunity for growth. We hold each other accountable to a high standard of excellence.
We recognize that direct, honest communication is the best way to help each other.
We build collective fire and strength by giving and receiving help.
