Event Details

  • Ben Reuler (Seattle Works)
  • Deena Pierrott (City of Seattle)
  • Jun Wen Zhong (Xealth)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Washington Technology Industry Association's _ion program facilitates exploration, inspires action, and sustains collaboration among small cross-functional teams of volunteers from tech, government, and community-based organizations. Over the course of a 6-month commitment, they take the time to build relationships with each other as well as discover their community together. Only then do they apply what they’ve learned to collaborate on a community solution. Once trust is established, innovation follows. 

The pilot of _ion was completed on Nov. 29. Eighteen professional volunteered a combined 1,500 hours. The three cross-sector volunteer teams invested 6 months in a collaborative process that resulted in discovering, designing, and creating these projects: 1) a story sharing format to promote inclusion; 2) an online resource to help people working in downtown Seattle discover places to live outside Seattle with easy commute times; and 3) an online resource for employers to become inspired to consider second-chance hiring. 

Come hear about the lessons learned from the _ion pilot about the nature of collaboration and help shape the next cohort.  Learn more here
