Principles of integrity, transparency, meritocracy and nonpartisanism are at heart of the Circle’s philosophy. We live by our values and believe in leading by example.

Integrity. To err is human, but we always do our best to act justly and in good faith regardless of the social pressure.

Transparency. We believe that transparency and accountability are essential in building public trust towards and legitimacy of an organization. This is why the Circle publishes all of its decisions and protocols online.

Meritocracy. In the Circle we cherish the talented, motivated and hard-working individuals regardless of their social status, ethnicity, age, religious belief or sexual orientation.

Non-partisanship. Politics may come and go while our principals and values are here to stay.
