GFJ staff foster inclusive collaboration across systems. 3) Reflective: Analyzing challenges and solutions from multiple angles requires in-depth reflection by systems on their impact and the communities they serve. 4) Creative: GFJ staff work with the existing resources in a community and leverage them to ensure safe outcomes for survivors. 5) Realistic: GFJ staff focus on immediate and incremental progress that evolves and expands over time. 6) Research-Informed: Accurate up-to-date research in the field of gender-based violence can help everyone make better, more informed decisions.
