community outreach and engagement
I'm a community builder. I connect and celebrate groups of people with common interests and I rally them around products, services, individuals, or an important cause. Once people join an online or offline community, I use digital tools and communication techniques to build and maintain relationships with them.
I enjoy teaching organizations and teams how to recruit, retain, and mobilize old/new community members. It's important to utilize them in ways that are mutually beneficial or you'll lose them as advocates of your product, service or brand.
Of all the communities I could build, my favorites support the empowerment of youth, women, diversity in technology, urban/economic development and people of color. However the community building strategies that I use can be adapted for any cause.
