Are you looking to highlight the outreach and volunteer work you do in the community? LinkedIn has recently added a new "Volunteer Experience & Causes" section, where members can feature volunteer positions, causes or organizations they support.

Volunteering is great way to support your community and get your business out in front of potential clients. Here at The Whole Brain Group, we support many nonprofit organizations with our time and talent. Many of our team members volunteer on boards and committees, and we frequently donate professional services like graphic design and web development.
