Capturing collaboration

Much of the work that is done on the workforce side, in Central/Western Maine, involves collaboration, and partnerships. We're fortunate to have a wealth of great organizations, and individuals that understand the importance of leveraging resources, and putting their own agendas aside, for the sake of building some models of success, like WorkReady, and Next Steps.

As someone who writes professionally, with a background as a freelance journalist, I know what it takes to develop an article involving various groups, and organizations. It is an art to create an article that accurately captures a project, or idea, so that readers have a clear sense of what has happened.

Catherine Carson-Gabriel, who is the Communications Coordinator for Central Maine Community College, has done a wonderful job in distilling the essence of our recent Next Steps training, done in collaboration with CMCC. Her article, which appears in the May Around Campus News publication of the college, is also posted on their website. Here is a link to the article.

Thanks, Catherine, for accurately capturing the spirit and essence of the work that many of us consider important, and injecting a great deal of passion into. It is very much appreciated.
