REMINDER: Pre-Course Survey PART B

Please support us in our efforts to assess and improve the quality of our programming by asking you some detailed questions. This survey is primarily multiple choice, on the topics of innovation, leadership and HCD- and should take no longer 10-15 minutes. Get started here- thank you for completing as soon as possible!

UPDATE: #TAKEDSILGLOBAL Crowdfunding Campaign

A big thanks to everyone who supported the #TAKEDSILGLOBAL crowdfunding campaign- it was amazing to see support come in from around the world. Thanks to the collective efforts we were able to raise extra funds to subsidize and sponsor impact leaders to join the online VC Track. You will see these new faces at our community hub!

Reminder: DSIL 'Challenges'

The "DSIL Challenges" were created to deepen your learning as you begin your 'DSIL Journey' all the way through to the end. The challenge will require you to be intentional and reflective. They will also require you to show engagement with your community. Many challenges will require you to lean on others in order complete them.

In total there are 12 'Challenges':

  • 4 Pre-Course Challenges (for everyone before August 18th)
  • 4 Field Immersion (for during Tracks A/B/C/X only)
  • 4 Post-Immersion (for everyone after December 11th)

Read more about them here.

Head's Up: The 4 pre-course challenges need to be taken care of before you arrive to the field immersion.
