Leadership Austin’s Core Values:
We act with a commitment to stewardship of community and a personal responsibility to work toward the common good of Greater Austin. The community and its resources are a living trust to be preserved and enhanced for the future.
We recognize the value of learning about and including different viewpoints. Communities are comprised of individuals and groups, each representing a different history, culture, passion, and perspective.
We seek collaboration to bring constructive and inclusive engagement in creating the solutions or making decisions that serve the greater good—for the long-term.
We have the ability to choose how we engage with issues and our fellow citizens. As community leaders, we take personal responsibility for our behavior and our results; we recognize that we must always employ inclusiveness and integrity in our civic engagement.
