    MAP for Nonprofits’ Team Values

    (Also see Ethics:
    Practical Toolkit for Business

    This document serves as an example
    of a code of ethics. As well as having corporate codes, codes
    can be geared for specific purposes and be focused on various
    relationships. The following code is geared to support the working
    relationships among staff at MAP
    for Nonprofits.

    These team values guide how we MAP
    staff members interact with each other in our workplace. The integrity
    of these values rests on how consistently we apply them. We regularly
    review and update these values to reflect current priorities in
    our workplace.

    · Model MAP’s corporate vision, mission and values, as
    well as these team values

    · Participate — say what you believe
    · Work to know who will do what and by when
    · Do what you say you’re going to do when you say you’re going to do it
    · Take initiative!

    · Recognize the value of my job — ask for my help and
    realize that I have other priorities
