Project Management Program

Organized by SLA-NY’s Professional Development Committee

Tuesday, March 1st  

Remedy Partners at 275 Seventh Avenue, 21st floor

6:30 p.m.

Program Details:

Learn about the “agile” project management techniques used by high tech companies, such as Google and Amazon, and how to apply them to your projects. In this talk, experienced project manager Carol Saltzman will share key lessons to learn from this popular approach to project management. Carol will introduce both the conceptual basis of a specific agile project management framework (Scrum) and guide members through a case study of a traditional project reimagined as an agile project. Scrum is particularly popular in software development circles, but the framework can be applied to practically any project to improve productivity, transparency, and predictability. Participants will leave the seminar with a clear understanding of the benefits of agile and specific techniques that can be borrowed from agile methods and applied to their traditional projects.

A Celebration of Black History Month through Jazz Music

Event title  :    A Celebration of Black History Month through Jazz Music
Event organizers : Magalie Desince, member of the SLA NY Diversity Committee

Listen to the sounds of a Neighborhood Concert: Sarah Elizabeth Charles with members of the SLA-NY Diversity community.

Celebrate Black History month with the sounds of Jazz.  Jazz has its foundation in the African American-derived blues music, and is a musical art form indigenous to America.

 

Vocalist and composer Sarah Elizabeth Charles’s smooth, soulful voice has captured audiences worldwide, including performances at the Bern Jazz Festival in Switzerland and Jazz at Lincoln Center. Her most recent album, Inner Dialogue, “is a work of confidence and maturity … and a hip blend of styles, suggestions, and sounds” (All About Jazz). This concert will also feature new works inspired by the song “Somewhere” from West Side Story and written by young people in the Manhattan community in collaboration with Charles as part of The Somewhere Project, a citywide creative learning project that honors Carnegie Hall’s 125th anniversary.
Admission for the Jazz Concert is FREE and open to all, but reserved tickets are limited. You must self-register first by calling the Harlem Stage Gatehouse at 212-281-9240, ext. 19 or 20 or click here . Once you have self-registered, please add your name to the list below.
