Intersectionality: Each day, company founders strive to create affirming environments for those most vulnerable. We know that systems of oppression are interlocked, creating complex lived experiences for those with multiple identities. All TCS support services will center specific considerations for populations who have historically been systematically excluded or underrepresented.
Learning of social significance: Always a student remains a company value. Founders commit to learning, engaging, and presenting topics which foster practical knowledge and applications. TCS founders commit to personal pursuit of anti-racism and the tenets of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. We value centering in learning from lived experience.
Social Justice: TCS founders believe diversity, equity and inclusion consideration should be threaded into every aspect of learning and engagement. TCS operates under the philosophy that successful clinical and professional work is rooted in social justice which strives to support health equity and health literacy for all.
Twice the Excellence, Twice the Knowledge: TCS founders believe that engaging the very best of our fields, and drawing from the diversity in our scopes result in a unique experience from which our clients benefit.
