Rethinking (and Redefining) Creativity with Monica Kang

Association Chat's Next Live Show is Rethinking Creativity
Association Chat’s special guest, Monica Kang, is on a mission to “redefine creativity.”

Creativity is not only for a select few.

Before she went into applied creativity, Monica Kang specialized in nuclear nonproliferation. That’s just your first clue that this next chat won’t contain the predictable ho hum mantras about creativity listeners might be used to hearing when it comes to this topic.

Get ready to shake things up and take a new look at what innovation can do for you, your teams, and your organization.

Please join Association Chat live this Tuesday at 2ET as host KiKi L’Italien talks with Monica about her mission to “redefine creativity.”

More about Monica Kang

Monica loves building bridges, relationships, and communities.

She believes that change is possible when more people are able to understand and integrate into different worlds simultaneously. That integration is possible with creative thinking and an open mind. For Monica, those two worlds are entrepreneurship and public policy.

Prior to InnovatorsBox®, Monica specialized in nuclear nonproliferation as contract support to the U.S. government and a non-resident Kelly Fellow at Pacific Forum CSIS. She has lived and worked abroad at the United Nations in Geneva and Chosun Newspaper in Seoul. She got her M.A. degree in Strategic Studies at SAIS, Johns Hopkins University and her B.A. at Boston University. To satisfy her love for entrepreneurship and creativity, she also sought out to be a StartingBloc Fellow and Mentor, Hive Fellow, Design Thinking in DC member, a Startup Weekend Organizer and Facilitator in DC. She is also in the process of being a certified coach and proud to be part of Coach Diversity Institute based on International Coach Federation standards.

Her love for interactive experience, safe space, and vulnerability reflects deeply in the curriculum she builds at InnovatorsBox. Her joy is to create ‘aha’ moments for the attendees because the best learnings comes by ‘being in the moment.’ She is a strong believer of ‘learning by doing’ and focuses on creating a safe space for deep inner search and discovery.

In her spare time, she loves to travel, read, paint, and teach Korean. You’ll often see her with a chai latte and chocolate croissant at a cafe.
