Practicing humility and openness

This includes being transparent about practices, engaging with communities and their unique needs, and holding parties responsible to communicate clearly and without bias.

Understanding the complete data

Ensure every effort is made to glean a complete understanding of data, where it came from, how it was created, and includes future potential users of data.

Empathy for all

Including Data Trust partners and for the individuals from which the data is derived.
