As a current or aspiring technology, marketing, design, or project management professional – How can you use your skills for good? What are ways in which you can make a positive contribution beyond your "day job?"
Join us for a virtual round table discussion, spotlighting six professionals who've been supporting different initiatives and communities, both internally and externally, in a number of different ways!
Some of the core ideas and questions that will be addressed include:
1. ) How can you help a local professional group, association and/or event?
2.) How can you identify STEM-focused, workforce development initiatives and programs (including nonprofits, veteran-focused programs, coding/tech schools, etc.) that are in need of support? How can you get involved and truly impact the trajectory of someone’s career and life?
3.) What are some specific groups/efforts where you can work on civic good or nonprofit projects?
4.) What are some annual events that organizations/communities put on where you could lend a hand?
5.) What are some skills-based volunteer team building ideas you could organize for an internal team or a volunteer initiative for a group/association you're involved in?
We guarantee you'll leave this conversation with at least two new ways you can give back!
