2) The session that I attended was called "Beyond Service: Social Change as Good Business". I learned that service does not just include volunteering at a non-profit organization. Businesses can play a huge role in helping out the community if that is what they desire. I also learned that the best way to help the community in a business-related setting is to look at your own struggles and try to find a solution for them. Last Call, for example, was made by a GW student who experienced problems with the prices of food around the D.C. area, so she made a service that sells leftover food from restaurants for a fraction of the price.
2. I attended the Social Change as Good Business. I found this session really interesting because when you enter the field of business, it is about maximizing the amount of money that you make. But, I learned in this session is that companies doing or participating in community service can actually benefit a company. I also learned of the importance in participating service and how that can be a useful when you apply for jobs.
Question #2: Of the six sessions, I attended "Working with Differences to Build Intersectional Relationships". In this session, the intersection of race, class, accessibility, and privilege was discussed in relation to the dynamics of living in DC. As someone whose existence is forged at these intersections, I learned that working together with those that don't live within those bounds can be beneficial to dismantle systems of oppression.
Question #2: For my session I attended Social Change as Good Business. This was a super interesting topic about combining what you are passionate about into what you do for work. The idea that helping others in your line of work can make your life feel more meaningful. I also learned that community engaged scholarship can help you stand out when looking for a job.
2. I attended the Explore New Pathways to Social Change session where I learned about the different kinds of public services. How accessible and easy it is to help and make a difference in the world through these public services.
The transsexual presentation in room 301 was the most powerful and impactful for me. to learn that there were violence and discrimination from family, friends, and strangers. I think it was impactful because the situations are so wrong to me and hurtful. it is in the community we live in and that's scary.
2. I attended the session in the ballroom where they discussed various community engagement initiatives including: a food waste reduction program called Last Call and a consulting firm for non profit organizations. I learned that the Nashman center has a lot of resources available if one wishes to create their own community engagement initiative.
2. I attended the session titled Social Change as Good Business which centralized around non profit service and how impactful it is especially when it coincides with your passion and your values. One aspect of the presentation that stuck with me, was the idea of connecting with every person you meet because every conversation may lead to a new opportunity in the future. Additionally, the speakers brought up their own personal experiences with service and talked about how beneficial it has been to both the people they are helping and to themselves. This was mainly because they have a yearning to help due to their interest in the mission of the service they are completing. I have also learned that community engaged scholarship can not only be a positive experience for yourself, but also for businesses, as many companies look for people who have completed service and people who are interested in aiding a specific cause or group of people.
I attended Explore New Pathways to Social Change session which I learnt several pathways to Public Service.
2) The session I attended was titled “Working with Differences to Build Intersectional Relationships”. In this session we discussed about the social factors that separate DC. This was interesting because it kind of showed the impact of race and class on social advantages.
