What Makes You Tick? A visualization exercise to identify your personal and professional priorities and ways you can act on them


Thursday, December 1, 2016, 5:30pm to 7:30pm


1 Brattle Square, Room 401

Join HKS' Women in Power Student-Run PIC (formerly known as Women at HKS) and Shorenstein Fellow, Erie Meyer, for a facilitated exercise that will help you identify what makes you tick and how to make the most of you time - in your life and your career. Started by members of Tech Ladymafia, the exercise involves vocalizing and mapping what work you’ve done, how you spend your time, and which things you most love or hate to do in order to generate action options for how to spend more time doing what you love. It also works as a conversation so each person will be paired up with an amazing fellow HKS-er who can offer new insights. Everyone's visualizations will be unique, but the exercise is a great way to clarify your priorities and needs during your time at HKS, especially as you hunt for your next job or internship. Light refreshments will be provided.

Erie Meyer is a founding member of the United States Digital Service, where her team was charged with improving public-facing digital services for federal government agencies. Previously, she worked on the President’s Open Data Initiatives, served as a Senior Advisor to the U.S. CTO and worked on the founding team at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Meyer is a co-founder of Tech Ladymafia and was named one of Forbes’ 2014 “30 under 30” for technology. While at the Shorenstein Center, Meyer will explore the role of data in the future of civic life, media and politics.
