(Bleg) Do you want to help us promote online communities, for free?
One of the challenges of not having any budget to promote knowledge management work is that we can’t afford to hire technical support when we need it!
That said, we have a great team working on promoting and supporting the use of communities of practice to support knowledge sharing in UNICEF. But in-house demand has been so great we need a bit of extra support. So if you are a good writer, have some spare time and would like to help us then leave a comment here and I’ll follow up with you by e-mail.
