Reinventing Work - Matching Skills with Meaningful Jobs
We are having a robust discussion in a fun atmosphere with food and drink -- A PARTY -- to explore how to discover, uncover, develop and implement ways to make transformative work available to all members of society -- "transformative work" being work that is both sustainable and sustaining, providing purpose and meaning first to the worker, and ultimately to society. Figuring out how to customize employment is key in finding a flexible process designed to personalize the employment relationship between a worker and an employer in a way that meets the needs of both. It is based on an individualized match between the strengths, conditions, and interests of a job candidate and the identified needs of an employer - whether it be private, public or quasi-public. Customized employment utilizes an individualized approach to employment planning and job development — one person at a time . . . one employer at a time.

    What we're about

    Let's create an academic free space to explore different options to make new development and redevelopment as good or better than our existing city, towns, villages and hamlets that are already here in Frederick. Just like war is too important to be left to the generals, planning and design are too important for the citizens not to be fully engaged. This group can learn from the many communities around the world that are doing amazing things. We can find a place to have face-to-face conversations, share a common library and allow interaction with visiting students and others. We can bring in world class speakers to inspire us with successes, and we can take group tours of places to experience on the ground different scenarios. Community building is the most exciting thing that citizens can take part in and shape. It is not as boring as reading the phone book or attending long, adversarial fait accompli board meetings. So let's get together, have healthy dreaming sessions and debates and let the best ideas win -- no matter who or where they come from!
