Panelist

The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines "panelist" as "a member of a discussion or advisory panel." We define it as a person who brings to the table a perspective, an approach to a problem, and the desire to find a solution.

This website is a forum for sharing knowledge with others that may or may not agree with you, where what you know will be challenged by what you learn. We encourage fearless discourse and comprehensive interpretation, as an effective panel is only effective insofar as it is inclusive, spirited and diverse.
