Our Mission

Winrock International is a nonprofit organization that works with people in the United States and around the world to empower the disadvantaged, increase economic opportunity, and sustain natural resources.

Our Commitment

Since 1985, Winrock International has made and continues to make a difference in the lives of thousands of people around the world. The respect and confidence that our funders, subcontractors, vendors, and the people we serve have in our organization is rooted in the hard work and integrity of our employees. Our continued success depends on each of us maintaining the highest of standards, where each employee, officer, director, volunteer, consultant, subcontractor, and authorized representative is committed to ethical behavior, honesty, and integrity.

Our shared mission is to empower the disadvantaged, increase economic opportunity and sustain natural resources. Our mission is core not only to what we do, but also to how we do it. For example, we must comply with all the laws wherever we work. We comply with our funder’s requirements. We also have requirements for how we conduct ourselves in the workplace, set forth in our Code of Conduct.

Our Code of Conduct is a collection of guiding principles which are an extension of our mission. It provides information, education, and resources to help us make good, informed decisions and to act on those decisions with integrity. These principles are required by our funders and meeting our obligations to our funders requires us to adhere to these principles in letter and spirit. We take all aspects of ethics and integrity very seriously, and believe that all of us have a duty to fully understand this Code.

This page provides three options – Ask a Question (for when you have questions about the Code, other policies, or an ethical question), Make a Report (for when you want to report a concern or a suspected concern), or Have a Conflict of Interest Approved (all conflicted actions must be pre-approved via this site).
