Our Culture

How we work together

At the Walton Family Foundation, we hold ourselves to a high standard of performance and impact. The way we work together and with others in our community – whether Walton family members, fellow employees or partners/grantees – reflects a commitment to demonstrating the qualities and characteristics that support a healthy, positive working environment. We should feel empowered to hold one another accountable for demonstrating these principles in our day-to-day work. To actively live out our mission, vision and values:

We are people who

  • Demonstrate respect, integrity and honesty;
  • Value diversity, equity and inclusion;
  • Are innovative, creative and entrepreneurial;
  • Are knowledgeable in our respective areas of expertise, yet curious about new ideas and comfortable challenging the status quo;
  • Seek to elevate team over self, considering and actively engaging with others who will be impacted by our work and decisions; and
  • Focus on strategic impact, over personal agendas.

Working in an environment that

  • Values and recognizes diverse expertise, beliefs and life experiences and seeks to learn from those differences;
  • Solicits and embraces open-minded thinking from those in our community;
  • Provides opportunity to unlock the potential of its employees;
  • Challenges assumptions, biases or behaviors that don’t contribute to a respectful workplace; and
  • Promotes, encourages and models quality of life for all employees.
