    Culture and Values

    At the Minneapolis Foundation, diversity, equity, and inclusion are embedded in our culture and the way we pursue our work. We are driven by passion and guided by these core values:

    Change is personal.

    We work to change ourselves through listening, learning, understanding and taking responsive action.

    Internal mirrors external.

    We reflect internally the community we hope to see externally.

    Equity is a responsibility.

    We see and remove personal and systemic barriers that hold inequities in place.

    Proximity is necessary.

    The closer we get, the more we understand, empathize, and transform; we can always get closer.

    Civic participation is powerful.

    Places and systems that value and work for everyone foster the multi-layered participation needed to solve complex problems.

    Hope is essential.

    Recognizing the challenges of today does not eliminate our ability to see –and create–a better future.
