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

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.

GO Connect Workshop: Unlocking Personal Brand: Know, Feel, Do

GO Connect Workshop: Unlocking Personal Brand

Networking is often seen as a song and dance routine, marking off checklists, and at times a forced social pressure. Often it can feel more like a task to find the right people at the right time. The moment you’re able to come up for air – growth opportunities look more like survival mode and you may find yourself drowning in a sea of your business card collection which is now brimming over your dresser drawer. Sound familiar?  

In partnership with The Spill Teem®, we have decided to offer a full, in-depth look at the topic of Personal Branding – GO Connect Workshop: Unlocking Personal Brand is a deeper dive into what it means to rediscover ourselves in a world that wants us to be someone else. Expect to reignite the authentic parts of your personal and professional journey that drive the best results. 

The workshop will be held on Thursday, September 13th from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Center for Nonprofit Excellence (1701-A Allied Street).

UVA Data Science Research Lunch and Learn Series


More than six million motor vehicle collisions occur in the United States every year. And the varying degrees of injury can make it difficult for emergency responders and hospitals to triage patients and target care where it is most needed.

This is where data science can make a difference.

Join Dr. Thomas Hartka on for a discussion on how he is using data to predict the risk of injury after a crash. By incorporating these risk models into clinical care, medical teams have the potential to focus resources on patients most at risk for injury. saving money and saving lives.

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.

CreativeMornings Charlottesville: Tradition

December Topic: Traditions are sacred because they cultivate consistency and a sense of belonging. It’s the bread and butter for fostering connection and community. We’re in a time where traditions are being challenged and remixed. We question how they came to be and the context in how (or if) they fit into the future. “This is just the way it is” is a statement of fear, not possibility. It undermines the human capacity to adapt and create change. Traditions are made by us, for us, so therefore they can be reinvented with intention and imagination. You may not start the next national holiday, but you can bring to the table your generosity, your kindness, your vision and heart to create a more welcoming future.
