You’ve probably heard the expression, “it takes a village to raise a child.”
Well, it also takes a “village” to raise a project. As we’re preparing for the Recharge Your Career Conference, several team members are working hard to get ready. We have teams from MAPLE 2.0, from the Vancouver Public Library and from ISSofBC – everyone is collaborating for the Oct. 11 event at VPL’s Central Branch at 350 West Georgia (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.)
We have also had a collaborative experience with the IMPACT project (Immigrant Pathways to Alternative Careers in Technology.) Last November, we gathered a group of people to advise us in the development of our work. They helped us abundantly and we’re so grateful for their support and ideas.
In this posting, we’d like to introduce the members of one of our two advisory committees. You are likely to meet them at the conference, so here’s a quick preview of the people who guided us through IMPACT development.
