Shine a Spotlight In Your Next Job Interview

Photo by Blondinrikard Fröberg on Flickr under CC by/2.0 As a job candidate, it's up to you to shine the spotlight on the skills and experiences you've had that are relevant to the job or company you are interviewing for. Too often, candidates prepare scripted answers and don't adapt them to the specific interview questions, company or interviewer. On this episode, I share some advice on effectively communicating during job interviews. Take a moment It is not enough to have a dozen well-rehearsed stories that illustrate examples in response to the interview questions you anticipate. Invariably, you will get asked a question that you haven't prepared for. In a few seconds you will have to decide which story fits the question best and start your answer. The danger is that you will tell the story as you've prepared it without tailoring it to your audience or the exact question. Interviewers remember when a response doesn't answer their question. But they don't remember that you took an extra few seconds before starting your response. Focus on what your audience wants to hear The AIM framework from Lynn Russell and Mary Munter is a great tool to employ when preparing any communication, including job interview responses. The acronym stands for Audience, Intent, Message. The audience is the person or people receiving the communication. The intent is both your intent: what you want to happen, and the intent you want to create in your audience. The message is both the delivery mechanism and the content. When preparing for any interview, take the time to really think about your audience. Are you speaking with the recruiter, or the hiring manager? These are two different audiences, and your intent will be different. For the recruiter, your intent is to communicate that you are a strong candidate with relevant skills; you want to advance to the next round of interviews. The recruiter needs to believe that you are the right choice for the role she is trying to fill. For the hiring manager, your intent is to communicate that you have the relevant skills, right fit with the team, and ability to do the job; in this case, you want to get the offer. The hiring manager needs to believe that you are capable of doing the job, fitting in with the team, and growing to be a valuable asset to the company. Start with “the end in mind” Reminding yourself of your intent before preparing, and before your actual performance (the interview) will help you shine the spotlight on the right facets of your experiences and respond appropriately to questions that you did not expect. This starts with the most common interview question: Tell me about yourself. The interviewer wants to know just the relevant details about what you've done that led you to this company and this role at this moment. For example, the fact that you used to build Contact Relationship Management systems for nonprofit organizations may have nothing to do with the work you do today. Your ability to analyze voter data and cut turf for political canvassers? Irrelevant. Scrum Master and Scrum Product Owner certifications? Who cares. But throughout your career, maybe you've always been committed to helping the people around you and your clients communicate more effectively. BINGO. I might be talking about myself here... When answering behavioral interview questions ("Tell me about a time when…") don't get sucked into the trap of sharing a very procedural (and generic) explanation of the situation, and what you did filled with every detail you can think of.  Think about your intent: why are you telling this story? What does it demonstrate about how you think and work? What skill or competency does it demonstrate that is relevant to the role or company you are interviewing for? It's all about structure and focus And remember that the human you are talking to is hardwired to look for structure. Stories have a beginning, middle and end. Gustav Freytag mapped out the classic narrative arch: Introduction, Initial incident, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, Resolution, Denouement over 160 years ago. People retain structured information 40% more reliably and accurately than information that is not structured. When you are answering a question, make sure that the content fits into a structure and is relevant to the audience and the question. There are many interview answer structures or frameworks: STAR is the most common: Situation Task Action Result, but I like CAR: Context (or Challenge) Action Result. These are not the only two that are out there: sometimes you want to add a learning or a take-away (CARL or CART) at the end, or a summary at the beginning (SCAR). Consider the level of detail, language and analogies that may be relevant to your audience. For example: if you are interviewing for a data analytics role, you might focus on the part of the story where you extracted insights from data. If you are interviewing for a role that focuses on interaction with customers and clients, you might focus on that part of the story where you determined what your client (internal or external) really wanted to know from the data and how you delivered the insights on-time. If you are interviewing for a role that requires cross functional collaboration, you might focus on how you worked with multiple teams to pull together the dataset you needed. Think of these as different facets of a multi sided die. The die is the experience or story, but depending on what question you are asked and what role you are interviewing for, you will expose different facets. That's how you can shine the spotlight on the parts of your experience that are most relevant to your audience and, ultimately, land the job!

Today we are talking about habit #4 that secretly affects your productivity, which is Planning Without Time Blocks. Time blocking is revered as one of the essential time management skills due to its efficiency and ease of use. Time blocking deals with scheduling tasks in specific hours of the day and doing those activities only during their scheduled time frames.When you plan without time blocks, there is a higher chance that your one task may not get done or may extend through hours of the day which will cause delayed tasks and outright cancellations of important decisions that may affect your business success.Planning without time blocks strictly affects your organization and time management skills that negatively impact your business' performance. Everyone in your firm needs to be good at time blocking their tasks and activities and it will make everyone even more productive. For more on time blocking, check out an article I wrote by going to https://bit.ly/Time_Blocking. Tune in tomorrow for habit #5 that secretly affects your productivity. If you get value from these Accountability Minutes, please take a minute to leave me a short rating and review.

Today we are talking about habit #3 that secretly affects your productivity, which is Checking Social Media. Social media is more than a way to view memes, gifs, and videos, as well all know. It has transformed into a platform that benefits businesses at every turn, when managed properly. As an entrepreneur, you may be handling your social media by yourself. The only challenge with this is that checking your social media can be a slippery slope, as you might already have experienced more than you care to admit. You may open any of your platforms to reply to a message or just to take a look at your insights or performance for a minute.This can quickly devolve into hours of watching funny videos, liking posts, and jumping from page to page, and one attraction to another. Instead of doing this, simply turn off all your social media notifications and put your phone out of sight. When you do this, you can focus on the most important high payoff tasks you have to handle to move your business forward. Strictly follow the allotted time block when you handle your social media services. Once the time allotted is up, put your device away or close the apps or tabs and turn your focus to other high payoff activities. This will help you improve your productivity.If you are the only one to do social media marketing, time block when you will do this activity. I recommend not doing this during prime time, of course. Ideally, you can hire this activity to someone else who is an expert because it can be delegated and doesn't need to be done by you. You should only do what you can do and can't be done by anyone else. Tune in tomorrow for habit #4 that secretly affects your productivity. For more on time blocking, check out an article I wrote by going to https://bit.ly/Time_Blocking. Subscribe to my high-value proven business success tips and resources Blog (https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/blog/)  Take advantage of all the complimentary business tips and tools by joining the Free Silver Membership on https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/coaching-store/inner-circle-store/. Want more from The Accountability Coach™, subscribe to more high-value content by looking for me on https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/my-podcast/ and on most podcast platforms and in most English-speaking countries, or by going to https://itunes.apple.com/podcast/accountabilitycoach.com/id290547573. Go to https://www.accountabilitycoach.com to check out for yourself how I, as your Accountability Coach™, can help you get and stay focused on you highest payoff activities that put you in the highest probability position to achieve your professional and personal goals, so you can enjoy the kind of business and life you truly want and deserve.  As an experienced accountability coach and author of 5 books, I help business professionals make more money, work less, and enjoy even better work life balance. Check out my proven business accelerator resources by going to https://www.accountabilitycoach.com/coaching-store/.  Aim for what you want each and every day!  Anne BachrachThe Accountability Coach™

Today we are talking about habit #2 that secretly affects your productivity, which is Continuously Checking Your Emails.As we all know, emailing is one of the preferred choices of communication amongst businesses and their clients, partners, and suppliers alike. Due to its ability to instantly search and receive messages, emails remain a trusted mode of communication to keep you informed at all times.The challenge business professionals face with emails is that continuously checking emails has become a habit that chews away at a lot of your very valuable time. Sometimes, you can spend hours searching and refreshing your emails and responding to emails and messages. Doing this continuously has a negative impact on your productivity. Though it is important to be informed, utilize an important time management skill like time blocking to help you check your emails and function at an optimal level. Section an hour or a few minutes of your day to check your emails. This can be done either once in the morning, around 11:00, is what I recommend (and not the first thing in the morning), and then around 4:00pm to be on top of your inbox for tomorrow. Doing this helps you focus on more important tasks and significantly improves your productivity. Tune in tomorrow for habit #3 that secretly affects your productivity. For more on time blocking, check out an article I wrote by going to https://bit.ly/Time_Blocking. If you get value from these Accountability Minutes, please take a minute to leave me a short rating and review.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Basics of Rationalist Discourse, published by Duncan Sabien on January 27, 2023 on LessWrong. Introduction This post is meant to be a linkable resource. It contains a short list of guidelines that are intended to be fairly straightforward and uncontroversial, for the purpose of nurturing and strengthening a culture of clear thinking, clear communication, and collaborative truth-seeking. "Alas," said Dumbledore, "we all know that what should be, and what is, are two different things. Thank you for keeping this in mind." There is also (for those who want to read past the simple list) substantial expansion/clarification of each specific guideline, along with justification for the overall philosophy behind the set. Prelude: On Shorthand Once someone has a deep, rich understanding of a complex topic, they are often able to refer to that topic with short, simple sentences that correctly convey the intended meaning to other people with similar context and expertise. However, those same short, simple sentences are often dangerously misleading, in the hands of a novice who lacks the proper background. Dangerous precisely because they seem straightforward and comprehensible, and thus the novice will confidently extrapolate outward from them in what feel like perfectly reasonable ways, unaware the whole time that the concept in their head bears little or no resemblance to the concept that lives in the expert's head. Good shorthand in the hands of an experienced user need only be an accurate fit for the already-existing concept it refers to—it doesn't need the additional property of being an unmistakeable non-fit for other nearby attractors. It doesn't need to contain complexity or nuance—it just needs to remind the listener of the complexity already contained in their mental model. It's doing its job if it efficiently evokes the understanding that already exists, independent of itself. This is important, because what follows this introduction is a list of short, simple sentences comprising the basics of rationalist discourse. Each of those sentences is a solid fit for the more-complicated concept it's gesturing at, provided you already understand that concept. The short sentences are mnemonics, reminders, hyperlinks. They are not sufficient, on their own, to reliably cause a beginner to construct the proper concepts from the ground up, and they do not, by themselves, rule out all likely misunderstandings. All things considered, it seems good to have a clear, concise list near the top of a post like this. People should not have to scroll and scroll and sift through thousands of words when trying to refer back to these guidelines. But each of the short, simple sentences below admits of multiple interpretations, some of which are intended and others of which are not. They are compressions of complex points, and compressions are inevitably lossy. If a given guideline is new to you, check the in-depth explanation before reposing confidence in your understanding. And if a given guideline stated-in-brief seems to you to be flawed or misguided in some obvious way, check the expansion before spending a bunch of time marshaling objections that may well have already been answered. Further musing on this concept: Sazen Guidelines, in brief: 0. Expect good discourse to require energy. Don't say straightforwardly false things. Track (for yourself) and distinguish (for others) your inferences from your observations. Estimate (for yourself) and make clear (for others) your rough level of confidence in your assertions. Make your claims clear, explicit, and falsifiable, or explicitly acknowledge that you aren't doing so (or can't). Aim for convergence on truth, and behave as if your interlocutors are also aiming for convergence on truth. Don't jump to conclusions—maintain at least two hypotheses...

This is: Basics of Rationalist Discourse, published by Duncan Sabien on January 27, 2023 on LessWrong. Introduction This post is meant to be a linkable resource. It contains a short list of guidelines that are intended to be fairly straightforward and uncontroversial, for the purpose of nurturing and strengthening a culture of clear thinking, clear communication, and collaborative truth-seeking. "Alas," said Dumbledore, "we all know that what should be, and what is, are two different things. Thank you for keeping this in mind." There is also (for those who want to read past the simple list) substantial expansion/clarification of each specific guideline, along with justification for the overall philosophy behind the set. Prelude: On Shorthand Once someone has a deep, rich understanding of a complex topic, they are often able to refer to that topic with short, simple sentences that correctly convey the intended meaning to other people with similar context and expertise. However, those same short, simple sentences are often dangerously misleading, in the hands of a novice who lacks the proper background. Dangerous precisely because they seem straightforward and comprehensible, and thus the novice will confidently extrapolate outward from them in what feel like perfectly reasonable ways, unaware the whole time that the concept in their head bears little or no resemblance to the concept that lives in the expert's head. Good shorthand in the hands of an experienced user need only be an accurate fit for the already-existing concept it refers to—it doesn't need the additional property of being an unmistakeable non-fit for other nearby attractors. It doesn't need to contain complexity or nuance—it just needs to remind the listener of the complexity already contained in their mental model. It's doing its job if it efficiently evokes the understanding that already exists, independent of itself. This is important, because what follows this introduction is a list of short, simple sentences comprising the basics of rationalist discourse. Each of those sentences is a solid fit for the more-complicated concept it's gesturing at, provided you already understand that concept. The short sentences are mnemonics, reminders, hyperlinks. They are not sufficient, on their own, to reliably cause a beginner to construct the proper concepts from the ground up, and they do not, by themselves, rule out all likely misunderstandings.

➢ KEY WORD: “MY YEAR” 3 discounted spots available.➢ Watch the video on youtube- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djR9_2_5CBMIn this episode we give you 6 simple nutrition tips to level up your year.Listed points:(1:15) 1- Focus on calories in vs. calories outThis one isn't quite as easy as it sounds, or the other tips but definitely the most important. So many variables come in between watches lying to us, food labels, etc.Aim to use measuring cups, food scales, and track everything for maximum accuracy.Big takeaway- Keep track of the data and you'll notice trends.(3:25) 2- Learn to be okay eating the same foodsIt's been said that we make 200 decisions related to food a day, by eating more of the same foods, we can help minimize that.An easy way to help this remembering all the benefits of the food that you're having and all the great stuff it will do for your body.Within each meal, ask yourself - what value is this added for me, or what purpose?This teaches you to learn A LOT vs. blindly following a meal plan and allows you to build up the habits.(6:40) 3- Focus on food densitySimply put this means that there are low calories in large amount of food. Low energy density means there are few calories in a large amount of food.Easy way to help feel fuller on fewer calories.Some examples- Water, Fish, Lean meat and poultry, brown rice, sweet potato, basically all veggies, low fat popcorn, etcHere's a quick example with raisins and grapes. Raisins have a high energy density — 1 cup of raisins has about 480 calories. Grapes have a low energy density — 1 cup of grapes has about 104 calories.(9:40) 4- Aim to snack less or minimize snackingThe more used to doing this, you'll always be looking for food around the house and just eat a bunch of randomness, especially when hungry.I prefer 3 solid meals with 1 solid snack.(13:38) 4.5 Eat at roughly the same time as usual if possible.(14:10) 5- Pre log and planOne of the most underrated strategies to help you succeed and stay on track.If you're reactive vs. proactive, you'll be highly misguided.(15:08) 6- Don't sweat the small stuff.Most companies will attempt to get you to part with your hard earned money by using enough scientific terms and big words to make you focus on small stuff so they can sell you fad diets, or supplements.95% of people spend most of their time focusing on the last 5% rather than focusing on what really matters: consistency, adherence, hard work, sustainability, and tenacity. Don't let your self get suckered.Thanks for listening!

119: How Can the Subscription Economy Benefit a Nonprofit's Revenue?, Interview with Dave Raley

Grant Writing Simplified

Join me on the Fast Track to Grant Writer: www.teresahuff.com/vip   Several months ago I was at a large nonprofit conference in Nashville. While wandering up and down the booths, one caught my eye. They were giving away macaroons…delicious, colorful, many-flavored, handmade macaroons. *Sigh.* The macaroons worked their magic and I quickly became friends with the two coworkers running the booth. Turns out one of them, Dave Raley, was at another conference just the month before in Milwaukee - and so was I! We were both presenters at that conference, but somehow our paths hadn't crossed there.  At any rate I'm glad we finally met because, aside from the delightful macaroons, Dave and I have kept in touch and he's a wonderful person. That's why I wanted you to meet him too. Today you get to meet Dave Raley, a consultant who helps organizations take care of their economic engine through innovation, growth, and scaling. Dave points out we should pay attention to important trends in the amount of giving, type of giving, and who does the giving.    Trends To best make the type of impact you are working towards it is important to review your current situation. First, look inward and review the things you do to produce revenue. Secondly, look outward and pay attention to trends. Trends are like waves. Just like when you're trying to catch a wave surfing, you can miss waves by paddling too early or too late. You need to match the speed and be on top of it to be able to ride the wave. An example of a trend that we're currently in the middle of is the Subscription Economy.    How to Best Use the Subscription Economy We're currently living in a Subscription Economy. Not long ago, a person's typical monthly payments included the necessities of life like mortgages, car payments, and water bills. Now we subscribe to much more every day. Things like Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, softwares, gyms, food - all these point to the subscription economy we live in. This has transformed the way donors and customers think about recurring transactions. It has normalized the concept of monthly giving and encouraged it through the ease of it all. Consumers and donors see monthly payments as a normal part of life and as a good and doable thing. This helps create predictability for organizations, including nonprofits, since they can have an idea of their monthly incoming revenue. Say a nonprofit wants to ramp up subscription giving: Take stock of what you've got. Look at your recurring donors and the long term value. You need to know where you are so you know where you can go.  Prioritize your monthly giving program. Make it easy to see and use on your website or another type of functional giving platform.    Tips for the Subscription Economy: Donors like convenience. Automated giving can help your revenue.  Don't limit your goal and therefore limit your plan. Aim high. Look at your giving program and how to better use your resources.   Challenge Question: How can you rethink and maximize the subscription economy we are living in?   Meet Dave Raley:  Consultant, speaker, and writer Dave Raley is the founder of Imago Consulting, a firm that helps faith-informed organizations generate profitable growth by developing sustainable innovation.

In the “AIM” Series Dr. Kennetra A. Bryant targets in on how God purposefully placed desires, goals, and AIMS in our hearts to fulfill. It is our responsibility to seek God's guidance regarding the AIMS we are aiming towards. As one begins the process of achieving their AIMS it is of extreme importance to discern the intent, motive, and nature of one's AIMS and honestly ask the question, Are the AIMS I am pursuing God-honoring or Self-Seeking? Holding one's AIMS under the light of God's WORD will provide the answers needed on whether one needs drop their self-seeking AIMS or yield their God-honoring AIMS to God. The AIM is to glorify Our Heavenly Father with every AIM we desire to achieve.

We are seeing the numbers of children struggling with emotions skyrocketing, and as a trauma psychiatrist, it makes sense to me.  Traumas create predictable patterns in our psychological and biological health.  The pandemic was/IS a shared, global trauma that all humans experienced, and if a large number of "adults" are struggling with "post-" traumatic mental health effects, then of course, the children are suffering, too.  In this episode, we will dive into 3 common challenges for children who have experienced ACES: Tantrums, Trouble-making and Trust-issues, and address how Empathy (LOVE) can help them heal.ACEs (Adverse Childhood Events) are surprisingly common in the US. About 61% of adults surveyed across 25 states reported they had experienced at least one type of ACE before age 18, and nearly 1 in 6 reported they had experienced four or more types of ACEs.experiencing violence, abuse, or neglectwitnessing violence in the home or communityhaving a family member attempt or die by suicideAlso included are aspects of the child's environment that can undermine their sense of safety, stability, and bonding, such as growing up in a household with:substance use problemsmental health problemsinstability due to parental separation or household members being in jail or prisonPreventing ACEs could potentially reduce many health conditions. For example, by preventing ACEs, up to 1.9 million heart disease cases and 21 million depression cases could have been potentially avoided.https://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/aces/index.htmlBe aware of the power of words and the way the amygdala can pull even adults into saying things in a heated emotional state that we cannot “erase” even when We retract.  Having empathy for the Child's internal experience.

The first FBI agent close to the Leonard Peltier case is calling for his freedom. Coleen Rowley recounts, in this wide-ranging and exclusive interview, her time as an agent in the Minneapolis field office. For nearly 50 years, the FBI has indoctrinated its agents on a specific version of events that led to Leonard Peltier's arrest, conviction, and imprisonment. The mentality then, Rowley argues, is little different than the mentality today. That's why she decided to break the silence and is calling on President Joe Biden to grant Leonard Peltier executive clemency.   Rowley gives us an insider's view of the FBI and how the dark and violent history of COINTELPRO, which targeted civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and social movements like the Black Panthers and AIM, didn't end in 1971. It morphed and evolved over the years and continued well into the U.S. war on terror. Despite attempts at reform and accountability, the FBI continues its ongoing persecution of political prisoners like Leonard Peltier and the unarmed Water Protectors at Standing Rock. This is a preview of a longer conversation. Watch the entirety through the video edition on The Red Nation Podcast YouTube channel or subscribe to Patreon for as little as $1 to listen to the audio.

In this solo episode, Dr. Derrick Burgess will reminisce about the expansion of TimeOut with the SportsDr. Podcast.  This show has provided listeners with a life-fulfilling journey of various guests from different fields, including sports, medicine, business, and entrepreneurship. Tune in today as we look back to the first day of our journey which seemed impossible to prosper.  Then fast forward to the realization of how far we have come – inspiring lives and touching hearts.    A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. One of the finest things in life is to accomplish something wonderful, then step back and reminisce about the hardships and barriers we've overcome along the way. Most of the time, taking the first step toward our goals can be dubious. Consequently, the fear of uncertainty can trap or even immobilize us in deep thinking, contemplating whether to take a step forward or turn back.    Indeed, we must recognize that the journey to every destination is never perfect. There will be moments when our goals seem impossible to achieve, but if we can only visualize the end from the beginning we won't quit.  However, if we remain faithful and consistent in what we do, there can be no doubt that we can win. Thus, it takes love, determination, and faith in God to reach our desired destination. We must learn to embrace hardships and realize that consistency increases our capacity to prosper. If we are focused and determined, every fall can be the catalyst that manifests great reasons to get up and continue to show up no matter what.   "We're not aiming to be perfect; we're aiming to be progressive." – Dr. Derrick Burgess   Topics Covered: (00:00:00) Introduction + Episode Snippet (00:00:20) Connect with Dr. Derrick Burgess for more content and updates.

She, a true crime documentary, is the first documentary film by Vanessa Cicarelli and Jason Greer of Birdy & Bean Films and stars Emmy-award nominated Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek: Voyager and Orange is the New Black), Coco Jones (Bel-Air), and Raven Goodwin (Single Black Female). She is a full-length documentary about writer Aimée Baker and her award-winning poetry collection, Doe (University of Akron Press). Doe is her quest to honor missing and unidentified women and make sure their stories are not forgotten. Every year, over 300,00 women go missing in the United States and there are currently over 2,600 Jane Does waiting to be identified. The few that make it to the top of our newsfeed capture the nation's attention. She brings the same attention to some of the stories that never made the news. Like Baker's poetry collection, She shifts the attention away from the perpetrators of crimes and centers the stories of the women throughout the film. Each woman's story includes narration by Kate Mulgrew and readings of Baker's poems by Coco Jones and Raven Goodwin. Want to Watch: YouTube Meisterkhan Pod (Please Subscribe)

For our first episode of 2023, our guest is Mike Boufford, CTO of Greenhouse, an applicant tracking system and recruiting platform.  Mike has a unique career as an engineering leader. He wrote the first line of code at Greenhouse in May 2012, and he's still there — over a decade later. This isn't the typical path of non-co-founding engineers, who usually get layered or leave to start their own ventures. In our conversation today, we focus on how founders build an environment that makes early employees want to stay, and importantly, how leaders can build the career skills and self-awareness they need to succeed at a startup long-term. Mike shares more on: How his own motivation changed over time and how he managed his relationship with the company's co-founders.  The techniques he used to prepare himself for every next phase of growth and how his role would have to change in 18-24 months. Why he read two books on every other executive's area of the business when he joined the leadership team. Mike also refers to his First Round Review article in the interview, which we definitely recommend reading: Why This Engineering Leader Thinks You Shouldn't Aim for Zero Regrettable Attrition.

"The work we do has to work for the farmers and food makers, for our team members and colleagues, and how we can build positive momentum for everyone." —Andy Naja-Riese   The Farmers Market offers a variety of benefits to the local community. They provide a convenient and accessible place to buy fresh and local produce which is often healthier and more sustainable than the produce available in the supermarket.    Purchasing seasonal produce and local products helps to support the local economy and farmers in the area and preserves traditional farming practices. These local vendors also help to offer education to the community about the importance of sustainable farming and help to strengthen the sense of community by providing a gathering place for members of the community.    Led by Andy Naja-Riese, The Agricultural Institute of Marin/AIM is helping the food system move forward by creating a Center for Food and Agriculture. This initiative aims to foster meaningful connection between the community and their local Farmers Market.   In this episode, we will dive deeper into the center of our food system and answer important questions that affect us and our environment: Is it really possible to feed everyone? What 2 factors determine a program's success? What are the benefits of having a Farmer's Market in a community? How is buying real food at the core of our food system? Is the Farmers Market all organic? How can we support equity with regards to food access? And finally, what can we learn from AIM's environmental processes? Tune in as Justine and Andy answer these questions and more! Meet Andy: Andy Naja-Riese brings 15 years' experience in community food systems and education. He is Chief Executive Officer of the Agricultural Institute of Marin (AIM), a Bay Area 501c3 educational non-profit that connects communities and local and regional food systems so the public can access healthy and sustainably-grown food. He brings a unique perspective to non-profit executive management after spending 10 years with the Federal government, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition Service.    While government assistance and feeding programs are intended to support health and development, there exist many inherent conflicts and political influences that often undermine the very outcomes that government programs are designed to achieve. Andy successfully navigated these bureaucratic systems to effect change so that scientific evidence would drive policy and program decisions. This experience has shaped much of Andy's thinking about our food systems and charitable food programs.    In his current role, Andy is a champion for a systems approach to connecting farmers and food producers directly with eaters while supporting education and advocacy. Andy is doing just that when it comes to directing the 8 certified farmers markets, mobile market, and educational programs run by AIM to serve 360+ small and mid-size family farmers, food businesses, and artisans from 40 California counties. Andy also shares his vision for building a new food landmark: the Center for Food and Agriculture, a world-class gathering space that takes us on a journey from healthy soils to healthy foods to healthy communities.
