I joined GovLoop in January & am so thankful for the site.
I was, almost immediately, befriended by Adriel Hampton from the City of SF. I told him about my work on an EPA Region 9 Social Media Leadership Development project. We had lunch and I learned a lot! He has really been an inspiration & a wealth of knowledge.
Because what I was learning about Gov 2.0 was so fasci”net”ing, I decided to do my leadership program rotation at a nonprofit focused on social media. I’m working on Social Media for WiserEarth http://www.wiserearth.org for the summer and will return to EPA this fall. WiserEarth is a global online community of people and organizations working on social justice, indigenous rights, and environmental issues. It’s a small, nimble organization with international employees and volunteers so it’s a real contrast to federal service. I’m learning new things every day and feel that GovLoop played a major role.
Looking forward to the SF Celebration.
Thanks Steve & Adriel!
