We created +acumen to give people a way to “add Acumen” to their lives.
+acumen is anchored by our vibrant network of 19 chapters around the world. Each chapter consists of a core of amazingly talented and committed volunteer leaders, who are dedicated to learning and sharing Acumen Fund’s principles and approach. We’ve been constantly humbled by the leadership demonstrated by our chapters and have been looking for ways to unlock this energy in more of our community.
Today we are excited to take the concept of “adding Acumen” to a whole new level by offering a new Acumen Leadership Essentials Course that anyone can participate in. The course is free but you must register as a group (min: 2 people; max: 6) and commit to learning together for six weeks. Visit our registration site for more details on the course content and how it will be taught.
This course is just the first of many we will be piloting throughout 2013. Our goal is to share what Acumen Fund is learning – our knowledge and insights, and perhaps more importantly, the values and principles underpinning our approach – with more people around the world, because changing the way the world tackles poverty will take all of us.
The world needs you to lead. This is your invitation. REGISTER HERE.
