Upcoming Events

I Know a Man...Ashley Bryan Documentary Screening & Conversation with Filmmakers Ashley Bryan reading
Wednesday, Oct. 25, 4:30 PM in Rockefeller Center Room 003

I Know a Man ... Ashley Bryan by Richard Kane and Robert Shetterly is about this 93-year-old creative wonder who skips and jumps in his heart like a child. He served in a World War II all-Black battalion and experienced the racism of a separatist Army and the carnage of D-Day. As a result he dedicated his life to creating beauty and joy, spreading love and awe through his art. He's a poet/illustrator of over 50 children's books, makes magical puppets and sea glass windows from found objects inspired by his African heritage. Ashley lives on the remote Cranberry Islands, Maine and has been using art his entire life to celebrate joy, mediate the darkness of war and racism, explore the mysteries of faith, and create loving community.

Medici Group Workshops: Oct. 24 & 25
IDE is sponsoring two Medici Group pilot workshops - facilitated by Sharang Biswas D'12, T'13 - focused on innovation, inclusion, and collaboration.

10/24: Intersectional Team Experience "brings talent from across different parts and functions of the organization to learn, innovate and be inspired together."

10/25: The Medici Method: In this session, "participants work in teams diverse across many dimensions, including functions, skills, and experiences to quickly explore new idea combinations based on your existing resources and unexpected inspiration. This approach helps teams come up with new ideas or explore new directions entirely that otherwise would not have been considered."

IDE Launches Dartmouth Helping Hands
"Dartmouth Helping Hands" is a new IDE community initiative where employees can use their "Volunteer Time Off" with a United Way Agency. The program seeks to further enrich Dartmouth's outreach with the local Upper Valley community. Half-day projects are typically scheduled once each term. IDE organizes projects with local non-profits and provides transportation and a meal.

Last month, a group of Dartmouth employees spent the morning cooking lunch for residents at the Upper Valley Haven, a local non-profit that serves people struggling with poverty by providing food, shelter, education, service coordination, and other support. Upcoming fall and winter projects will be announced soon.
