What is your primary interest in joining this group?

I love collaborative environments around social causes--just bringing our organization into greater engagement online and hopefully improved tech and I need some wiser sages to weigh in on it all. Also I love helping where i can, asking a lot of questions, and learning, iterating. Learning to listen more and to fail gracefully. Love what Goodnik is doing in NYC and want to get in a little deeper.

Tell us about your social enterprise, nonprofit organization or whatever it is that inspires you:

The people I work with and our clients at Project Renewal inspire me--for over 40 years they have helped the hardest to reach homeless become whole people with stable lives, homes, jobs and health. With over 900 employees in 15 sites in NYC they doggedly attack entrenched problems other agencies won't touch, all the while almost no one knows how amazing they are and all that they do. I want to change that!

Introduction

Hi! I'm excited to invest in the group. My nonprofit background is in NGOs and academic npos, in social media and research. This last year I worked in ecommerce at OpenSky, and am now heading up marketing for a homeless services npo (Project Renewal)
