On Wednesday, May 20th, 2020, join us for a live chat with a member of the Relativity team! We are excited to hear from Colleen Costello, Head of Social Impact at Relativity, during the chat entitled, "Engagement to Impact: Harnessing the Power of Community". Click here to register and also to hear the post-event recording, and we hope to see you there virtually!
Here is more information about this live chat with Colleen:
When I transitioned from the non-profit space to the tech sector four years ago, I thought I had a solid definition and understanding of community. In fact, my first title at my current company was Community Engagement Specialist! Through my work at Relativity, I now have a more expansive view of community that, when harnessed, can help us achieve common goals.
You will walk away from this chat with:
- A better understanding of what community means and how to define community for your organization
- How to leverage your community to tackle company-wide objectives
- How to ensure that you're creating value for both internal and external communities

Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
I thought about writing this blog piece like one of those quizzes that used to be on the back pages of Seventeen and Cosmo where each question would offer several answers of varying point levels and you'd pick one answer per question, tally up your points at the end, and match your score to one of several possible results.
