This past Tuesday, I started something exciting – and now it’s time to get some radical doing done.
I was recently names as a Fellow with the RADIUS SFU Fellowships in Radical Doing. This is an exciting, innovative program that takes people who are working on innovative projects and helps connect them to networks, resources, mentors, and boost their projects to a new level of success.
It’s tremendously exciting, for a number of reasons:
- My project during this fellowship is this cooperative: building it up and bringing it to a new, exciting level. I’m also looking forward to sharing the model of worker coops with my fellow Fellows.
- Vancouver’s changemaking scene is pretty exciting. RADIUS is an example of that. It’s a business school program explicitly designed to support organizations that are working for social justice, environmental justice, and inclusive health and wellness. So much awesome wrapped up into one little statement.
- I’m connected to 19 amazing other Fellows who are also all working on amazing projects – many of them dealing with impressive goals, like mental health or supporting people on the DTES.
The value of mentorship and connectivity that programs like this create and bring cannot be understated. There are so many awesome projects that just need a connection to spark them and bring them to life. This is why I’m thrilled to be working with RADIUS as a Fellow in Radical Doing over the next few months.
I’ll be sure to share my experiences on this blog and on the RADIUS blog – watch out and see what we’re able to do. Let’s get some radical doing done.
