Share how one of StriveTogether’s core values (community, courage, equity, progress and results) is important to you.

Progress. While excellence is the goal, we can’t get there without progress. It is important to make progress day after day, month after month, and year after year. This work is a marathon, not a race – with continuous progress we will achieve our goals.
