I am currently a consultant within the public sector of IBM and its Global Business Services division, providing support in a variety of functional and client-facing roles as well as internal communications and social media eminence initiatives. I have growing interests in data, social technology, and platforms for social good.
I am also the Founder and Executive Director of Social Rise, a non-profit DC based organization focused around teaching social media to low-income and underserved community members. I manage operations, partnerships, new projects, and advocacy. If you know of a non-profit interested in a workshop or consultation, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to Social Rise, I’m passionate about community improvement through a myriad of social issues such as education (career exploration, classroom engagement, achievement gap, pedagogy and creativity in schools), youth development, human rights, poverty alleviation, and economic empowerment.
I enjoy blogging and have written in the past about education, life, personal development, career insights, world-changing ideas, current events and more. You can check out some pieces at http://www.kushaans.com as well as Linkedin Pulse: https://www.linkedin.com/today/author/105831518
I am always looking to grow by meeting others with fresh and like-minded interests. Please subscribe!
