Creative Employee Engagement, Part 2: Creating More Affirmative Inclusive Communities for Developers and Women in IT.
Outstanding InfoWeek News Desk VIDEO -- Sara Peters, Senior Editor, Information Week -- interviews Lisa-Marie Namphy, (@SWDevAngel) Developer Advocate and Community Architect at Hewlett Packard Enterprise - InfoWeek News Desk at Interop 2016.
Lisa-Marie Namphy, (@SWDevAngel) who's also appearing on the Women in IT Panel at Interop 2016, focuses on innovative Developer Community Building as well as affirmative affirmative community-building for Women in IT roles.
She "connects the dots" with Open Source -- global open code communities -- that I've never heard connect in this way, even with years in IT management. Sara Peters makes a special contribution to this discussion that makes it creatively energetic and accessible, going beyond the usual "business video."
Will spark your "right brain" -- creative-intuitive-innovative "aha! ideas" mind!
"Innovation is a network of collective inner genius creation which has found its champion. Its sponsor. Its speaker. Its Voice." -- S.H. Rodman
An authentic, thought-provoking discussio to spark creative ideas about community building in any company or startup - and beyond IT. Affirmative, inclusive, expansive, and very "right brain."
Ties well to our last Right Brain Blog: "Employee Engagement Gets Down to One Thing: Employees Feel It's THEIR Company to Build." Excellent example. How "engaged" employees feel - is going to be impacted by these kinds of community-building programs that can lead to:
Takeaway: Creative change is coming in Information Technology (IT) internal communities and in all companies -- around Community Building and Women in Leadership. In every industry. The video is a great way to prompt more creative, inclusive, and innovative thinking as we start to do this better.
In fact: Could low numbers (as little as 30%) Employee Engagement -- be an indicator that we have NOT had creative community-building, advocacy and mentorship for women in leadership - advocacy for all employees to feel a larger sense of creative ownership and community in businesses?
I also like the creative "Developer Advocate and Community Architect" role idea at HPE. Might we have more "employee advocates" and "community architects" emerge as part of: Increasing Creative Employee Engagement?
