ABOUT DOHMEN CONSTELLATIONS:
Dohmen Constellations believes that a healthy life goes far beyond physical well-being. We will invest in self-sustaining solutions that ensure all people have equal access to a healthy life. We define health equity through four primary pillars:
- Social Health: Ensure equal access to mentors and support structure
- Intellectual Health: Ensure equal access to knowledge
- Economic Health: Ensure equal access to jobs and full employment
- Physical Health: Ensure equal access to physical and mental wellbeing
Our behavior is guided by five simple values –
Caring: We are empathetic and respectful. We ask “How can I help you?”
Committed: We are dedicated and persistent. We ask “How can I make it happen?”
Creative: We are inventive and imaginative. We ask “How can I do it better?”
Collaborative: We are cooperative and share our knowledge. We ask “How can we achieve success?”
Courageous: We’re willing to risk failure over inaction. We ask “how can I challenge myself”
This perspective defines us. How we act, how we do business, how we work with our clients and how we work with each other. They are the essence of what makes us successful. They are what set us apart.
