‘Experteering’ — a new way to pool top talent for social impact

Finding the right type of professional to implement a development program can be extremely tough — and even more so if you can’t afford top-tier talent.

That’s why many organizations are looking to firms like MovingWorlds, which connects specialists in their field who want to travel and volunteer their expertise with social impact firms that need their services.

“Experteering,” as MovingWorlds calls it, seeks to move beyond traditional volunteerism and grow a global network of professionals who want to do good and match their skill sets to create high-impact engagements.

Find out more about how this model works in this Devex video interview with Mark Horoszowski, co-founder of MovingWorlds, on the sidelines of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Corporate Citizenship Center conference last September.

Tell us your own volunteer story on Facebook or tweet us using #DoingMore, and check out all Doing More content here.

Doing More is an ongoing conversation hosted by Devex in partnership with Australian Red Cross, Cuso International, IFRC, MovingWorlds, Peace Corps, Scope Global (formerly Austraining International), United Nations Volunteers, Volunteers for Economic Growth Alliance and VSO.
