What's Interesting To Me These Days

There are not enough hours in the day for me to follow every trend, cause and issue in which I'm interested professionally (as well as personally). Plus, as a consultant, what I'm funded to do is always my priority. Therefore, I have to budget my time and prioritize which issues and causes I'm going to follow regularly.

It's not an easy task. It means leaving a lot of things I'm interested in by the wayside, unfortunately.

Below is a list of my current professional priorities -- issues and trends that I'm actively researching, reading and writing about. These are the subjects I'm most interested in as a paid consultant or employee. With more time and funding, I would love to engage in any of these areas even more fully.

I'm sharing this because I'm interested in hearing from others who are involved in any of these issues and would like to work with me or just to share information. I'm also sharing this list as a way to answer to questions about what I'm doing professionally, and what I would like to be doing professionally.

This list changes about once a year.

Follow me on social media to know when this web page is updated,
when I've developed new resources related to these subjects,
where and when I'll be speaking or training,
and other announcements related to my areas of interest.

What's Interesting To Me These Days:

  • Education and capacity-building programs for women and girls ANYWHERE
    Even in Kentucky, my home state, the value of education for women is substandard (for more than a few years, it has had the lowest rate of women attending or graduating from post-secondary institutions, and probably the lowest population of such graduates in the USA). Study after study shows that if you educate women and girls, you raise the quality of life of the entire population (doesn't happen if you educate only men and boys). In addition, I'm appalled by the dream of so many girls in developing countries -- to become super models or footballers wives, rather than doctors, teachers, business owners, or footballers themselves. I'm interested in helping to publicize efforts that promote the value of education and capacity-building for women and girls ANYWHERE.

Often, I link to particularly interesting resources I find about the above topics, or to resources I create, via the Jayne Blog.

Again, I'm interested in hearing from others who are involved in any of these issues and would like to work with me or share information. Please click on any links within the bullets for more information and for contact information (or, if there is no link, contact me).
