(Mission Statement) What is organization's mission statement? How will the mission statement support the ethical system? What message does the mission statement send to the community?
(Values Statement) What is the organization's values statement? How will these values inspire action and influence behavior? How do these values relate to the organization's mission?
Please follow APA guidelines (500 word-count)
