The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has launched the application process for the new Community Engagement Fellows Program, which will provide professional development for engagement experts in the scientific community. Applications will be accepted through Sunday, October 16.
David Hessekiel, founder and president of PeerToPeer Professional Forum, will serve as emcee for the conference, and nonprofits including The ALS Association, Heifer International, and Sierra Club will join to show attendees how they’re using peer-to-peer techniques to raise funds in the real world. Attendees will learn how organizations are taking their campaigns and events to new heights, and will leave with fresh ideas they can start using right away.
Will you be at #ASAE16? Join me, Joe Vallina and Natasha Bethea of the American Nurses Association on Sunday at 2 pm in room 155E of the Salt Palace where we'll be sharing progress on our massive engagement project.
Our people get the work done, and HR has embraced the job of making sure we have people in place, and then making sure we don’t get sued when we have to fire some of them. That’s not about growth. It’s about keeping up, and maybe not sliding backwards, but it’s not about growth. So how do you make it about growth? That’s precisely what we are going to discuss in our next WorkXO Webinar with our partner, QuestionPro (join us August 10!). And I’m sure you’re not surprised to learn that our answer will revolve around organizational culture. It is very possible to turn your culture into your growth engine. But you have to do it right, and there is no one in the organization better trained and prepped to lead that effort than HR.
