Generating Good Ideas , DC — October 25, 2015

IMG_1231Today, alums from our “Write to Change the World” core seminar joined us in Washington, DC to continue building upon the themes of expertise and influence that we explored during the first program. One of today’s thought-experiments required participants to pool their knowledge and resources to generate a piece of thought leadership together in 15-minutes, based upon an idea from participant Montressa Washington.

We were joined by alums from around the nation who traveled for the DC program to cross-pollinate ideas with their fellow alums. Joli Robinson, a former Dallas Public Voices Greenhouse participant, traveled from Dallas, Texas to further build upon her experience in the 3-month Public Voices program. Dabney Evans and Lara Martin of Emory University both traveled from Atlanta, Georgia to enhance their respective platforms as thought leaders. Dabney has published 4 pieces of public thought leadership since attending our Atlanta “Write to Change the World” program on June 20th. Check out her latest piece, “Humanitarian workers, as well as Refugees, need our help,” in The Hill.

Shout out to WeWork Dupont Circle for hosting our 2-day DC weekend intensive program. WeWork provides small businesses, startups and freelancers with the workspace, community, and services they need.
