Team culture

Culture is how we make decisions, how we treat each other, and what it feels like to walk into work every day

We focus on our members and event partners

We're chill and understanding while dedicated to getting the job done

We're collaborative and inclusive

We're driven and we take ownership; we never say “that’s not my job”

We do what matters

Anyone can be anyone’s mentor
