Written by Molly Talbert | on March 2, 2016 at 11:00 AM | 6 minute read

Volunteers created and continually update Wikipedia, the vast online encyclopedia. Dividing small amounts of work between many people has powerful effects that positively impact us all.

As the crowdsourcing movement shows us, everyone has the potential to affect change. The trick is finding simple, quick ways for people to lend a hand. All communities have this potential, but actually creating ways to harness this “cognitive surplus” can be difficult.

The Power of Mentoring in Communities

Written by Molly Talbert | on February 29, 2016 at 8:00 AM | 5 minute read

Take a moment to think back on your career, however long or short it’s been so far. What moments stand out, and who helped you get there?

Everyone hits bumps in the road, no matter how smart, driven or successful they’ve been so far. Think about the straight-A high school student who struggles once they get to college.
