We believe that all people are capable of extraordinary things.
We believe that our obstacles can empower us and build character instead of defining us and limiting us. It is our choices that determine the type of person we become and the impact we make on the world.
We believe that our abilities combined with our choices give every person the opportunity to become a Superhero.
The Superhero Code
Superheroes uphold certain values in service of a vision for a world that is safe, kind, and fair.
In pursuit of this vision, we commit to these principles.
I will use have the power or privilege I currently have to make a difference. It is my responsibility to do it.
I will use my resources to create safe emotional and physical spaces for others. I will take accountability and find a rectifying action if harm is caused by myself or others.
I am willing to put other peoples’ needs over my self-interest for the greater good of the community or the mission I’m in service of, with boundaries for meeting my own needs in healthy and productive ways.
Even when I’m scared or am out of my comfort zone, I will not avoid challenges, I will confront issues.
Sometimes, I will face unexpected challenges and difficulties. I will find ways to move through these experiences and note the lessons from these moments. I will always get back up and persevere.
I will always try to understand other points of view, even if I do not agree with them, and I will challenge views that are biased or harmful to the humanity and rights of myself or others.
I will always see the humanity in others and care about their well-being.
My greatest source of strength comes from allowing myself to connect with those I trust by sharing my life experiences, successes, failures, feelings, and inner thoughts.
Honesty is the basis of trust, and in order to help others, I must first establish trust. I will not lie, I will speak only what I know to be true.
In order create real change, especially in service of these other commitments, I must take action to move beyond words and ideas.
Walking The Path of the Hero
Whether you have an individual Superpower or you’ve mastered many abilities to become Superhuman, you must choose how you will use your abilities.
Extraordinary abilities can be used for good or for evil. I believe, now more than ever, we need more heroes in this world. We need people who have a commitment to making the world a safer place. We will always need those who fight for truth, justice, compassion, and decency. This is as true in the boardroom as it is in the streets. We need Superheroes everywhere.
What path will you walk?

The origin of the word meme can be found in the book The Selfish Gene written by Richard Dawkins and published in 1976. The original definition of a meme was: an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture. The term was inspired by Greek sources, such as mimeisthai which means “to imitate.” The word meme was intended to echo the word gene.
