CORE Values


In 2013, Canopy team members from across the state went through a year-long process of creating our Canopy Core Values which are:

  • The voice of our children and families always comes first.
  • Relationships matter and our differences make us stronger.
  • We take great joy in service to others.
  • Our families and communities deserve our very best.

During our 2020 staff retreat, Canopy team members began to thoughtfully discuss adding a new core value that would adequately illuminate our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

In 2021, after numerous discussions at the board level, leadership teams, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion council, with staff throughout the state, Canopy decided that an amendment to an existing core value was in order.

“Relationships matter.” became “Relationships matter and our differences make us stronger.” On June 25, 2021, the new and improved core value was revealed at celebratory events in Canopy locations around the state.

Relationships matter and our differences make us stronger. This core value is reflected in everything we do. From the way we interact with each other to the way we provide solutions. We believe that every employee has something valuable to contribute, and that’s why we will always seek to create an inclusive environment where everyone can feel respected and valued. We know that when we come together and embrace our differences, we’re able to achieve much more than we ever could apart.

– Taheti Watson, Canopy Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are mutually reinforcing principles that contribute to the effectiveness and greatness of any organization which provides services to individuals or groups. DEI is a formidable practice that opens doors to discovering the potential of staff. Better decision making and innovation result in goal achievement and return to constituents. Robust practice of DEI promotes: greater retention, fresh insights,  fair opportunities to all, increased integrity, positive workplace and a shared experience. Ultimately, it produces outcomes beneficial to all those we serve.

We are all in this together and that not only makes Canopy better, it makes Mississippi better.
