Pan-Asian Network (PAN)’s mission is to bring awareness and understanding to the diversity of Pan-Asian cultures and values. We want to support the acquisition, retention, and growth of Pan-Asian talent; promote dialogue to improve inclusiveness and address biases in professional development and career advancement; and establish a professional support network of members and allies to grow the next generation of Pan-Asian leaders at the firm.
Pan-Asian means “across Asia” (i.e., East, South, Southeast, Central, and mixed-race backgrounds), as reflected by the map in the PAN logo. PAN empowers our members through four major initiative areas: community, career, awareness, and fellowship.
Create a supportive community of Pan-Asian employees and allies to foster community and inclusion
Align with West Monroe’s strategic goals by increasing, retaining, developing, and growing Pan-Asian talent
Curate forums that allow employees to learn and discuss cultural, social, and career-related topics through the perspective of Pan-Asian employees
Develop firmwide social and cultural events that are unique to the Pan-Asian community
When PAN launched in February of 2021, we asked PAN members and allies to select one word that describes their feeling about the new employee resource group. Here’s what they chose.
