GO Connect: Networking REimagined

Personal Brand: Know, Feel, Do

At our GO Connect launch, which was held earlier this year, over 50 attendees had the opportunity to engage in a design thinking activity that made them rethink the way networking is done. This time, we will be offering another interactive exercise on personal branding. Personal Brand: Know, Feel, Do is an exciting exploration into what impression we are leaving on those we connect with!

We hope that you will be able to attend and that you will share this information with anyone you think might be interested in networking and connecting with new people and opportunities. The event is free but pre-registration is required due to limited space. Light refreshments will be served, and we will provide parking validation for the Market Street Parking Garage. For more information and to pre-register, visit www.goconnectcville.org.

UVA Data Science Research Lunch and Learn Series: Kathryn Howell & Benjamin Teresa

Richmond has the second highest eviction rate in the country, according to the headline-grabbing numbers from the Princeton University's Eviction Lab. And Virginia has five of the top ten highest evicting cities in the country.

At the RVA Eviction Lab researchers Katie Howell and Benjamin Teresa are exploring the data to determine what that means for the state and the residents who live there, or used to.

Different understandings of what "counts" as eviction lead to different conclusions about the scale of the problem and interventions to address it. Selecting a measure of eviction is not a politically-neutral decision, and so clarifying the underlying goal or purpose of why we are asking about evictions is important.

Join Howell and Teresa for a discussion on why they argue that evictions are simultaneously a result, cause, and indicator of urban inequality.

Lunch will be provided beginning at 11:30am and the talk is scheduled to begin at noon.

This talk is part of the DSI Lunch & Learn Series sponsored by the Center for Innovative Technology.
