√ TO DO : Stanford Black Community Book Profile
Stanford is compiling the first-ever Stanford Black Community Book (a la the current Stanford Reunion Class Books) - a digital resource that facilitates re-connections, new connections and networking opportunities. In an effort to capitalize on the energy surrounding the Summit, the Black Community Book will launch in late February in to help alumni connect prior to the Summit and continue to make new connections after the summit.
The Black Community Book will consist of a collection of short personal updates and contact information from undergraduate/graduate alumni who have identified themselves to Stanford as being part of the Black community. These updates will be shared with Black undergraduate/graduate alumni as a way to reconnect the community with one another, create new connections with Black alumni in your area or who share similar interests, and provide additional networking opportunities. We also plan to work with campus partners to share this opportunity with current undergraduate and graduate students as a resource as they prepare for their careers and journeys beyond the farm.
The pilot program is with a platform called BrightCrowd that would facilitate the curation of the community book and ongoing participation of alumni and students of both the undergraduate and graduate Stanford Black community.
In advance of the Retreat, SAA has asked the SNBAA board to lead the way and help to populate the book. With one click, you can use your LinkedIn profile to populate 90% of the fields and be done in five minutes! Please complete your profile by Friday, February 8th.
