ASCD's Core Values
- Caring: We appreciate differences in people and thoughts. We demonstrate integrity, decency, humanity, honesty, and good faith in all our interactions.
- Courageous: We are bold and unafraid to share new and non-traditional ideas. We are strong enough to debate professionally for or against a position about which we are passionate. We are brave enough to hold one another accountable to our focus on ASCD's priorities, commitments, excellence, and mission.
- Creative: We think and act creatively with a focus on relevance. We embody a collaborative spirit that moves us beyond organizational boundaries and thinking. We lead each other to transformative ideas and solutions.
Our employees are our greatest asset. We have approximately 120 employees working within our two divisions: Office of Integrated Services, Programs and Partnerships and Office of Administrative and Business Services. Our talented, knowledgeable, and dedicated workforce produces exciting work every single day. ASCD provides excellent benefits and an energizing environment that fosters employee engagement, skills development, and career growth. We work in a state-of-the-art facility near the established Winkler Botanic Preserve in Alexandria, VA. We are close to I-395 and accessible to the Pentagon Metro station via the free Mark Center shuttle, which stops right at our front door rain or shine. We invite you to join us. How could you fit in?
