• Our group’s capacity to leverage our collective knowledge and to model our values.

• Supporting communities as they identify and work toward a shared vision.

• Interconnectedness and collaborative learning between the community benefit, business and government sectors.

• Each other and our clients as equal partners in our business interactions.
• Continuing research and education.

• Transparency, truth, fairness and responsibility as primary in all business engagements and commit to holding each other accountable in these areas.

• Walking alongside of clients rather than making “the hard sell”; we meet clients where they are.

This group will BE PANO during projects received through this collaborative—which models PANO’s belief that “together we are stronger than anyone is separately.”
