    As a company that strives toward social justice for all people, we have a message to share with our stakeholders, employees, and our network in the Minnesota community and around the world:

    We value and support the diversity of all individuals. We respect and welcome people of different ethnicities, ages, genders, religions, races, classes, physical abilities, mental abilities, nationalities, sexual preferences, and expressions.

    We stand up to stereotyping and discrimination of individuals based on these traits. We seek to understand and learn from cultures that might be different from our own, and we encourage our communities to do the same.

    We are grateful for the opportunities we've had to work closely with people from different backgrounds, and we are committed to being an organization in which all people feel safe, accepted and heard.
