Coordinator | BC Family Justice Innovation Lab
All of the Looking Glass values resonate for me! At the moment the two that stand out are compassion and hope. A close family member was diagnosed with an eating disorder over a decade ago and it was a long struggle for her. Today, she is healthy and strong and reaching out to help others with compassion and hope. She is truly an inspiration.
Senior Manager | PriceWaterhouse Coopers
Courage is what guides those with mental health challenges, and enables the recovery journey. For our organization, accountability and transparency are very important.

Collaboration resonates with me the most. There are so many different people coming together from all paths of life, who all make this wonderful Foundation happen and function so well. I am so happy for Looking Glass’ success.
Owner & Manager | Sylvia Hotel
Always walk this journey with compassion and integrity.
I love all our values. One that jumps out to me is accessibility. We must do our best to ensure our programs are accessible, and this is in itself is an ongoing journey.
Founder | Private Company
Hope is a lifeline. Hope is love and possibility, and inspires us for the future.
Co-Founder | The Looking Glass Foundation
The values that resonate with me are: Courage because it's what we need to be the "hands and feet of change” for ourselves and each other. Collaboration because that’s how we get things done! Compassion for each other, for the process, for our own blind spots and learning. Lastly, integrity in all things.
Managing Partner, Portfolio Management | Bentall Green Oak
Compassion and collaboration resonate for me. Compassion is essential in providing support, and is something we can always draw upon even when in the depths of despair. Collaboration is critical - - the more we collaborate, the closer we get to achieving our vision.

Each of the values embraced by the Looking Glass Foundation are demonstrated in the ongoing planning and work of this organization. Hope is a particularly powerful element - it was one of the key foundations upon which this organization was established and has been integral to its evolution. Hope is a mindset for positive action and success. It is a conveyance of trust. Hope envisions a better future.

My favourite values are courage and hope. It takes courage to reach out, and it also takes courage to provide support. Hope enables healing.
