As we head into the holiday season, we’ll be taking a little time off from blogging. But don’t worry, we’ll be back in 2019 with more posts!
What we have to say, what you want us to hear.
That’s how our blog works. It’s interactive. Let’s learn together.
Since 2014, the Philanthropy Committee at ISE has been dedicated to uniting ISE to give back to the community. Each year the committee plans about one event per quarter focused on different charitable organizations within the community. We also hold blood drives throughout the year on site at the Coralville office.
Each year ISE employees are allocated 40 hours to use towards growth and development activities. Some use it to attend technical conference, some towards online learning classes, and others to play around with new technology. This year I've used the hours to grow my leadership skills and to become more involved in the community. Last week I attended the TEDx event in Iowa City which had a theme of “Power of Community”. I've never attended a TED Conference, but have watched a few online. I was pretty interested to see what a local, live event would be like, and I wasn’t disappointed.
May is National Bike Month! This week is National Bike to Work Week which is capped off on Friday (today) with National Bike to Work Day. According to the League of American Bicyclists, National Bike Month was established in 1956 as a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling - and encourage more folks to giving biking a try.
