The launch of a non-profit is announced. The Reinvent Me Foundation is a grassroots organization dedicated to promoting the reinvention process to displaced workers, veterans, and recent college graduates.
PRLog (Press Release) – Aug 02, 2012 – Even before The Wall Street Journal and the American Enterprise Institute began calling attention to the “human disaster” of unemployment, a group of concerned Virginia entrepreneurs and professionals from IT, training and development, digital media, marketing, and psychology had identified this issue and began working on a solution. This group of innovators who have used emerging technologies to solve real-world problems formed the non-profit organization, the Reinvent Me Foundation, Inc.
The Reinvent Me Foundation, Inc., a grassroots organization dedicated to promoting the reinvention process to displaced workers, veterans, and recent college graduates, was formed in 2012 to develop a high-potential, scalable, self-sustaining approach for job creation. Founders include Dr. Susan Hardwicke, Martin Chekel, Linda Hipskind, Patsy Arnett, Jason Yu, and Ray Lepper.
Mission of the Reinvent Me Foundation
The mission of the Reinvent Me Foundation is to empower people to rethink, retool, and retrain themselves to meet the demands of the current economic reality. “Waiting for someone else to create jobs that match their existing skills is futile,” said Board of Directors Chair Dr. Susan Hardwicke. “Today’s work seekers need to reinvent themselves to meet today’s marketplace, and then do this every two or three years to stay relevant, interested, and interesting.”
The foundation’s target audience is displaced workers, veterans, and those entering the job market from college. The primary delivery vehicle is a web-based hub of scalable, rapidly available, integrated content and social media channels to engage individuals and support their career change. Participants embark on a positive reinvention experience that will enable them to make decisions about their future, develop an action plan, and then implement it.
