Even in the middle of a pandemic, PInT (Public Interest Technology) has been able to accomplish a lot this year including starting a new subteam and expanding their skillshare events. This is part 5 of our series on different build and project teams here at Olin and what’s changed with COVID-19. Today, PInT is our focus as we look at how their pre-existing events have changed and what they’ve added this year.
One thing that’s changed significantly is when meetings are run. Previously, it’s always been that PInT would have a team meeting once a week with everyone present. However, similar to what we’ve seen with other teams, PInT has found it more effective to work and meet within sub-teams. After all coordinating the zoom schedules of 30 people is a near impossible task. They do hope to have some socially distant in-person meetings as people become vaccinated with the intention of hanging out and team bonding.
PInT has experimented a lot over the past year and some of those experiments worked and others didn’t but overall the team has learnt a lot and is ready for next year. Look forward to seeing more community events and projects from them!
