Here is my challenge. How do I get 41 days worth of clothes into 1 suitcase?  This closet needs to fit in one suitcase. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be happy to listen.  Anyone????  So far I figure half of what I want to bring will end staying home.

In the meantime, I'm pretty excited to finally receive our team's mission:

The challenge is to develop a sustainable workforce internship model that will expose young people to practical employment experience and skill sets required for productive employment.  We will provide the research and recommendations to put such a program together.  I have been lucky enough to meet with The Canadian Association of Canadian Employers They are an organization dedicated to bringing employers, educators and students together.  I can't wait to really get going!!

Corporate Service Corp - Kenya 8

IBM's Corporate Service Corp - Kenya 8

On May 1st, I will leave for Nairobi, Kenya as part of IBM's Corporate Service Corp (CSC).  The CSC is IBMs largest philanthropic program and one of the largest ones in the corporate world.  The Corporate Service Corps was launched in 2008 to help provide IBMers with high quality leadership development while delivering high quality problem solving for communities and organizations in emerging markets. The program empowers IBM employees as global citizens by sending groups of 10 - 15 individuals from different countries with a range of skills to an emerging market for four week community-based assignments. During the assignment, participants perform community-driven economic development projects working at the intersection of business, technology, and society.
