What if creativity took your team from good to great? What if it could transform your business? What if it could transform your life? 

Monica H. Kang is an entrepreneur and innovator who is changing the way people think (and learn) about creativity. 

Join us on Tuesday for this amazing live Q&A with Monica to find out about a different way to look at creativity, InnovatorsBox, and so much more.

More About Monica

Monica loves building bridges, relationships, and communities.

She believes that change is possible when more people are able to understand and integrate into different worlds simultaneously. That integration is possible with creative thinking and an open mind. For Monica, those two worlds are entrepreneurship and public policy.

Prior to InnovatorsBox®, Monica specialized in nuclear nonproliferation as contract support to the U.S. government and a non-resident Kelly Fellow at Pacific Forum CSIS. She has lived and worked abroad at the United Nations in Geneva and Chosun Newspaper in Seoul. She got her M.A. degree in Strategic Studies at SAIS, Johns Hopkins University and her B.A. at Boston University. To satisfy her love for entrepreneurship and creativity, she also sought out to be a StartingBloc Fellow and Mentor, Hive Fellow, Design Thinking in DC member, a Startup Weekend Organizer and Facilitator in DC. She is also in the process of being a certified coach and proud to be part of Coach Diversity Institute based on International Coach Federation standards.

Her love for interactive experience, safe space, and vulnerability reflects deeply in the curriculum she builds at InnovatorsBox. Her joy is to create 'aha' moments for the attendees because the best learnings comes by 'being in the moment.' She is a strong believer of 'learning by doing' and focuses on creating a safe space for deep inner search and discovery. 

In her spare time, she loves to travel, read, paint, and teach Korean. You'll often see her with a chai latte and chocolate croissant at a cafe.

How people can participate live and watch/listen later:

  • Association Chat provides participants with the ability to register and ask questions live on the day of the event, but it will also be streaming on Facebook Live where people can watch and comment.
  • There is usually a dedicated group of people registered on the actual Crowdcast platform for the episode to participate live (this number can fall in the range of 20-200+, it just depends on the speaker(s), topic, and pre-show marketing) and each show usually has over 1000 viewers on Facebook Live, with episodes later garnering 300-400+ views on the Facebook platform by itself.
  • In addition to that, the episodes are later uploaded to the Association Chat Podcast on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Soundcloud, and edited video to YouTube. These will be available Wednesday-Thursday of the same week as the live interview.
  • The replay will be available at the same URL as the chat within minutes of the chat's end and the link will continue to take people to the replay once it's over.
