At Ridgeline, we bring a relentless intentionality to the building of our culture. Culture is comprised of the beliefs and behaviors that embody who we are. In this pursuit, we do our best to capture these various beliefs and behaviors in our cultural canon. The dictionary defines a “cannon” as “the body of rules, principles, or standards accepted as axiomatic and universally binding. A fundamental principle, or general rule.”
