One word to describe your work environment: Supportive

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead, but not related to you) who would it be and where would you go? George Washington because I would like to ask him what motivated him to accomplish becoming the first president of the USA. I would take him to Peter Lugers Steak House in Brooklyn.
