Who is Pana?

Our core values…
  • Make Safe Spaces
    • People are happiest and most effective when they can take risks without fear of being judged as stupid, negative, or disruptive. We encourage admitting mistakes, asking questions, and offering new ideas.
  • Say What You Mean
    • We openly share our thoughts and feelings because we believe that debate leads to better decisions. We care about seeing each other succeed, so we frequently give direct and specific positive and constructive feedback to each other.
  • Check Your Ego
    • We’re solving unknown and complex challenges, so we constantly challenge our own assumptions and beliefs. We engage others’ feedback early and often, because we believe that teams accomplish more than individuals.
