On Anti-Racism & Black Lives Matter
We stand willing to listen, willing to be challenged, willing to learn, willing to change.
We trust that every act to listen well and every step taken to build trust matters.
Because when we stand united together we can make a difference together.
And so, we stand.
We stand in the truth that Black lives matter.
We stand against racism, hate, violence, and discrimination. We stand for a world that works for everyone.
We stand in the conviction that white supremacy and the institutional racism that enables it must be dismantled. We stand for a legal system that protects, upholds, and defends human rights. Because we believe all people have legacies worth leaving.
The following 6 values embody our desired culture and serve as a compass for our own behavior, as well as for those we serve.
We do what we say we are going to do, and we own our errors and shortcomings when they happen, taking full responsibility to respond to all situations with maturity.

We are deeply committed to our client’s success, and will match their commitment to the program with 100% dedication, every single step of the way.
We honor everyone’s different backgrounds, personality types, and experiences, and therefore actively seek to both understand all perspectives and practice compassion.
We embrace individual uniqueness, and give our clients the space to speak from the heart, and to truly connect with each other and NLBM staff on a real level — meeting each person where they are.
We insist on a personal commitment to our own growth and to empower that in our clients, and as such, we are curious, agile, disciplined, dimensional and self-reflective.
