Deputy Director, Partnerships and Outreach
I learn, share insights, and develop relationships that drive innovation between learning and working.
Day to Day
I study, learn, and communicate a vast amount of practices, ideas / theories, and academic research related to learning and work. I work collaboratively, and closely, with my remote team using a variety of video, chat, and doc-sharing tools. I build relationships and communicate frequently with internal and external stakeholders. I produce creative content, share ideas, and support the broad goals and objectives identified by me and my team.
Advice for Getting Started
Here's the first step for everyone
First, decide what problem you want to help solve in this world. Then, research organizations of all kinds, across multiple industries (non-profit, for-profit, start-ups) that align with your core values and that have a mission and vision that you can put yourself into 100%. Assess your strengths and learn how to communicate them effectively. Learn new things and expose yourself to diverse ideas and practices, then find ways to infuse these into your work and life. It is what makes you, you!
