10:05 AM Informed Action: NCWIT Resources Group Exercise Part I
Dalene King, Microsoft; Catherine Ashcraft, NCWIT; Wendy DuBow, NCWIT
The Workforce Alliance has sponsored groundbreaking resources over the years. NCWIT has also implemented a new website based on content management principles (making resources easier to find), and is moving towards strategies to produce more discreet resource modules (making resources easier to share). How can NCWIT resources be made more consumable, and hence more helpful in driving to action?
This will be an interactive session intended to generate dialogue on a) how NCWIT resources are being used today, b) gaps with respect to how NCWIT resources are packaged and/or shared, and c) resource content gaps – what do you wish you had that NCWIT hasn’t produced yet?
