Guiding Principles

Icon row-1.png

Principles are the norms, values and best practices that guide how we work together. PSEC's Guiding Principles were developed by its members during our first year, 2020, after various meetings, surveys and interviews.


Place marginalized individuals in the role of decision-makers and fight systems of oppression.


Proactively build relationships with students and ensure that our actions are guided by the ideas, opportunities and needs that they voice, including those not involved in STEM.


Engage our Philadelphia neighborhoods, communities, and members with humility

and candor.


Hold ourselves accountable to act and implement solutions.


Make and continuously adapt our decisions based on data.


Communicate continuously and transparently within and outside of the Collective about our actions and decisions.
