Our Values

We have six organisational values that express our shared understanding of what we believe, how we aim to behave and what we aspire to be as an organisation.

India Girls waving


We share the passion of our Members for developing girls and young women to reach their full potential in the world; we are dedicated to inspiring, supporting and enabling our Members to achieve this.

India - girl speaking with flags


We are committed to creating a safe, supportive and trusting environment that enables our staff and volunteers to grow and develop; to have a genuine say in how things work; to take responsibility, use their initiative, and do the best job they can.

Girls speak out 3


We have high aspirations and recognise that to achieve them, we need the courage to innovate and become a learning organisation. We want to be proud of our achievements, and tell our story to the world.

We embrace our diversity, and value equally the contribution of staff and volunteers from across the world; we consciously strive to work together collaboratively, as one global team for those we serve.

We commit to being an anti-racist organisation and condemn all types of racism against any minoritized group. Our commitment to this work is laid out in the WAGGGS Anti-Racism Report and Action Plan.

YESS Girls Movement 2016 participants


We are committed to openness, transparency and ethical behaviour. We understand that people need clear information to inform their decisions, to understand what we do, and to build trust and confidence in how we work.

We cherish our role as the body that champions and supports the global Girl Guiding/ Girl Scouting movement. To fulfil this role, we recognise that we need to value and safeguard our reputation as a well run organisation that is high performing, agile, and focused on delivering excellent results.
