    • in taking things personally. In throwing ourselves into our work and being passionate about our ideas.

    • in people. Our colleagues are a diverse, creative, outspoken, ambitious, character-rich ocean of talent.

    • in collaboration. Great ideas come from all corners. And they’re burnished by discussion and teamwork.

    • in decency. We love people who have passion, but aren't egomaniacs or glory hogs.

    • in personal growth. We teach, mentor, and grow the best and brightest, so they become leaders in the field.
