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.
What we have to say, what you want us to hear.
That’s how our blog works. It’s interactive. Let’s learn together.
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.
It's National Engineers Week! This morning our Fun Committee kicked off a week of celebrating the many engineers at ISE with bagels for everyone. I know they have a few more exciting activities planned for this week as well.
