As a Credly Customer Success Manager, I get to work hand-in-hand with organizations that are committed to recognizing their employees, students, and members by offering them digital badges. Starting a project with an intention to recognize others makes digital credentialing a positive movement in itself and the drive to support community-led change is something I’ve dedicated my time to.
Early on as an undergraduate majoring in nonprofit and community leadership, and now as a Customer Success Manager for Credly (talk about transferrable skills!), impact-oriented programs have provided me with an ongoing source of inspiration. I’d argue that the world could use a little bit of sunshine right now, so let’s take a peek…
One of our many nonprofit groups, likeThe Twin Cities Habitat for Humanityoffers credentials to their members and volunteers, with specific badges recognizing their women-led teams. Similarly,UNICEF USAuses credentials to acknowledge their members who, “have activated their local community by advocating, fundraising, speaking out, and building a community for UNICEF’s child survival work”.
There are higher education institutions, likeThe University of Texas at San Antonio, that quickly pivoted their program during the pandemic to support the San Antonio community with free professional development courses, regardless of matriculation status at the university.
The list doesn’t stop there! The Credly network has tons of organizations that are issuing badges with a desire to positively impact their communities. If you’re interested in learning more about the positive impact digital credentials can have on communities, register for our upcoming webinar, “Public Trust & Verified Credentials,” with panelists from the International Academy of Public Safety and the Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing.
