"We believe lasting societal change is achieved through both collaboration and meaningful disagreement. Living the value of collaboration inspires us to accomplish more together. Although it can be uncomfortable and feel overwhelming, healthy conflict is an expected component of a growing collaboration. When you reach areas of disagreement, it is usually a sign that you are progressing as a collaborative body."
