VALUES

We seek to be Globally-Focused. Through our programs, we encourage our participants to be curious and open-minded, while respectful of different perspectives and experiences.

We seek to be Member-Focused. Our membership is the core of our organization, providing the financial and volunteer support that makes WorldDenver effective. Providing value for our membership and high quality in our programming is crucial to sustaining our commitment to our members. We will work to remain innovative and creative in how we engage our members in the work of citizen diplomacy.

We seek to be Community-Focused. Through the interactions with our speakers and visitors, our work provides Denver with accessible and inclusive opportunities to participate in a network of globally-minded Denver residents and people from all corners of the world.  Balance and breadth in program design ensures that WorldDenver meets a variety of community needs.
