YOUR MIND MATTERS:
GET ENGAGED THROUGH OUR EDUCATION SERIES
Our Education Team is developing an array of engaging educational events on a variety of topics. Formats include First Fridays, book discussions, Investee workshops, evening discussions for those who can’t get away during the day, and Partner Meet-ups (informative events sponsored by other organizations which we attend and then gather to socialize afterwards).
We are launching our Social Innovation Series in which we nurture new ideas and showcase innovative approaches to social problems so that we can all become better informed community members. On April 13, Dr. James Misak, (MetroHealth family practitioner and Assistant Professor at CWRU’s School of Medicine) is speaking about the critical need for medical homes for the uninsured. Our next First Friday on May 4th will focus on youth violence – its causes and consequences, and a discussion of innovative solutions that are currently in circulation or that are being proposed in the Cleveland area. See details for both events in panel at left.
Whether attendees are members of nonprofits, businesses, foundations, or the citizenry-at-large, events such as these are intended to expose all of us to the ingredients of innovation which will help us accomplish our own goals.
Thanks to all of our Education Team members – Courtney Nicolai, Mike Klein, Desikan Gandarvakottai, Sylvia Perez, Evan Ishida, and Wally Lanci – for your ideas and energy!
