Care: We are mindful of each other’s well-being, professional growth, and growth. We acknowledge that our staff is often working in stressful surroundings where insecurity and risk are a daily fact of life.

Respect: We treat each other with the same level of thoughtfulness we want for ourselves, and we encourage diversity, inclusion, and a sense of belonging for all.

Integrity: We act ethically, with frankness and transparency, establishing the highest standards for ourselves as we work together and with partners, donors, and the international society.

Trust: We depend on and believe in each other to act in line with the core values and mission of UNICEF and in the best attraction of children.

Accountability: We hold ourselves and each other accountable for our behaviors; this means being answerable for our actions.

Sustainability – We apply environmental sustainability in our individual lives and at work, including in the design and performance of UNICEF activities, so that our work protects the planet and its resources for the children we serve, now and in the future.
