Building With Purpose: Scalable, sustainable & socially impactful

Peter Kazickas

At Uncommon.org, we believe that a high quality technology education is a basic, human right. As an EdTech nonprofit, our mission is to build a sustainable and scalable model for making access to tech education and employment opportunities ubiquitous. Brilliance is everywhere, opportunity is not. Our goal is to combine the best practices of the for profit and non-profit sectors to build an organization and movement that is truly uncommon.

In these unprecedented times, companies both big and small are experiencing significant changes in how they operate. New challenges forced businesses to create innovative measures, processes, and strategies, including rethinking how employees learn and develop. Many workplaces across the globe have successfully adapted to new ways of working, using innovative techniques and technologies to support learning. Western Union is a great example of how organizations can rise to these challenges, adapt to the ‘new normal’ and shape a ‘new possible’. Join us in conversation as we share our reflections, best practices and lessons learned in our journey of transition.
