We want to build a community in which we will learn together, from one another, and for one another. A community in which knowledge and collaboration have no boundaries, and a community in which egos are put aside to make room for inclusive, honest relationships. Within that community, contributions of any kind are welcome, as long as they enable us to support, produce, and achieve more. Our community building efforts are focused on three core activities.
- Using participatory, data-driven research to create actions, initiatives, and propose solutions, so people may meet other members of their communities, promote sustainable relationship building, social innovation, and collective action.
- Providing mentoring, training, and internships to people from underrepresented groups to help them get into the job market and become financially independent and sustainable.
- Hosting events, gatherings, and workshops to facilitate direct networking opportunities, as well as face-to-face knowledge exchange.
