    We not I
    Take daily responsibility to make the Global Arm community thrive.
    No individual owns the right answer. Brilliance is collective.
    Information is crucial, share it.

    Passion for progress
    Our differences are our strength. Widen and mix up your network of connections.

    Recognise the power in saying ‘I don’t know’.
    Make trust our default position.
    Hold strong opinions lightly.
