Via @fund2foundation The National Audubon Society’s Campus program, which started in the fall, has grown by leaps and bounds - 60 campus chapters since October! This video tells the story of partnership between two of Audubon’s newest chapters—one at Rust College (as you know - an HBCU) and the other at the University of Mississippi. https://bit.ly/2MW8FoU _ 📸: @audubonsociety
One of the many ways @Fund2Foundation is preserving the culture — by restoring and digitizing rare images for all to see and cherish. ・・・ Rare photo of Louis taken behind the Howard Theatre in Washington D.C. on this date in 1947, found in one of his scrapbooks and digitized thanks to @fund2foundation!

“More than the money we make, the awards, or recognition, or titles we earn, each of us will be measured by how much we contribute to the success of the people around us.” 👩🏾🎓👨🏽🎓👩🏼🎓👨🏼🎓👩🏿🎓👨🏾🎓 The @fund2foundation , which Smith had a key role in creating, is hoping to get thousands of students involved in internX. The new program centers on an internet site where students studying science, technology, engineering, or math can connect with companies looking to ensure their interns are drawn from a diverse pool of students. Too often students of color are overlooked when companies hire summer interns, says Linda Wilson, the foundation’s executive director. Companies will take on "summer hires" of children of board members or executives without regard to their qualifications, she says, but won’t consider a student from a historically black college or who lives in a different neighborhood.

#RP via @susanbgoldberg — Great conversation last night about #race with @RFS_Vista and the @NMAAHC's Lonnie Bunch.

“Executives have come to the realization that they have to embrace the 4th Industrial Revolution - they realize they have to be a part of this greater ecosystem. Incumbents are now figuring out they actually have to compete against disrupters to keep their customers.
