Link: ELGL Spreads Across the Country
“Cross between The Atlantic magazine and Buzzfeed”
Welcome to our new member feature. We’ve all heard the excuse “I’m too busy” too many times so we’ve simplified our new member feature to illicit short, meaningful responses.
In the feature we tackle the tough issues such as is the Apple Watch necessary and what are your career accomplishments. As a side note, ELGL is adamantly opposed to the excuse, “I’m too busy.”
Nijah Fudge (LinkedIn and Twitter) is the West Regional Director for the Alliance for Innovation. She is a University of Kansas MPA graduate with 6 years of experience working on teams implementing community development programs, grant writing, research and data analysis within public and private sectors.
