Our values embody our deepest beliefs and our highest aspirations. They drive and inform our culture. They answer the questions: What does Counterpart International believe? What matters most to us? What will we stay true to? They reflect what the organization strives for – they are rock-solid, enduring, and non-negotiable.

Counterpart International’s values are a reflection of how we work as individuals, as an organization, and as partners with external stakeholders. We hold ourselves, and each other, accountable to practicing our core values on each of these levels and we seek partners that share similar values.
