Compassion requires that one has both the empathy to feel for others and the practical commitment to do something about it.
These are the enduring values that empower the Humane Education Coalition to act with clarity of purpose. We uphold these core values in our work and promote them in the field of humane education as a whole. They represent what we believe in, what we stand for, and how we approach everything we do as an organization.
Accessibility & Inclusivity
We believe in reducing barriers between our constituents and the tools they need to learn, teach, and thrive. Learning should have no limits. To ensure accessibility and promote inclusivity, we do not charge mandatory fees to join the Coalition, take advantage of our programs, or take part in our initiatives.
We acknowledge and honor the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals. We believe in the strength of diversity and the significant value that cross-cultural collaboration has on a social change movement. We pledge ourselves to creating and maintaining an environment that respects diverse backgrounds, values, and experiences, both internally and externally. In addition, creating diverse and high-quality learning experiences will support growth among a wide range of partners with unique needs.
In all Coalition activities, we remain true to our mission to advance the field of humane education for the betterment of all living things. We work diligently to produce quality programs, provide exceptional service to our constituents, and maximize the support of our donors while maintaining focus on our vision of a compassionate and sustainable future for all people, animals, and the planet.
We believe a global network of partners committed to furthering humane education is essential to achieve the compassionate, sustainable world we individually work toward. A strong and collaborative partnership requires teamwork, communication, respect, trust, and accountability. Our innovative partnerships and strategic initiatives will support a progressive, collective impact.
We raise the bar in the field of humane education. Professional achievement is at the core of everything we do. Our representation of excellence in all our endeavors will inspire others to succeed. Encouraging professional growth, outstanding service, and a commitment to achievement will empower others to make impactful contributions to our collective efforts worldwide.
We approach problems with new solutions. In all our strategies, we consider world affairs and current trends in education. We challenge the status quo with creative, innovative, evidence-based approaches that meet the needs of our global network.
