Passionate - Seeing with an eye for how industry impacts people.

4 years ago I had an opportunity to serve as a judge for a day, judging the finalist of a speech contest. Before this day, I had limited understanding of the environmental threats to our world. The contest was a group of finalist from grades 10-12th across the state of California, regional MESA speech contest finalist. The subject(s) focused on industrial impacts to global warming, industrialized waste and Fracking. Deciding on a winner was a difficult decision. The students were passionate and precise in their materials and presentation.

The take away from the event was one of hope and inspiration in the youth of our nation.  In this scenario we were working with the lowest performing schools and producing remarkable results. 

Each team was diligent and passionate about the harms to people.  A component we tend to overlook in performing research for a fee.  Even in our current approaches, we pay university students to perform research with an expectation of what we want to produce from the research.  

A strong research model as a "shared service" led by students; as both experience based learning opportunities and low wage work opportunities. 

A global infrastructure for private and public sector organizations or agencies where unbias research and structured approaches are used to produce the pro's and con's of a subject using innovative practices.
