How we communicate is changing—rapidly. Every day, it seems, a new innovation comes along that transforms the way people connect and share information with each other. Powerful new tools can foster conversation, spark debate, and launch new ideas.
But how can leaders of social change organizations ensure that their messages are heard amid the noise of our increasingly networked world? How can they move ideas in a way that advances their cause?
A panel of leading practitioners in the field of nonprofit communications will explore answers those questions. Sean Gibbons of the Communications Network will lead off the discussion. Then Fred Mann of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will talk about the importance of developing a flexible, inclusive communications vision; Daniella Gibbs Léger of the Center for American Progress will explain how her organization’s deep investment in communications has paid significant dividends; Kevin Nix of Freedom to Marry will discuss how data-driven communications strategies and targeted conversations helped turn marriage equality from an improbable cause to one that now seems inevitable; and Andrew Sherry of the Knight Foundation will show that communications has become not just an opportunity but a necessity.
This webinar will be of value to senior leaders and communications professionals who work in a variety of social sector organizations.
Webinar registrants will learn about using the power of smart, strategic communications to drive social change. During a question-and-answer session, they will also be able to direct questions to Gibbons, Mann, Léger, Nix, and Sherry. Michael Slind of Stanford Social Innovation Review will moderate the webinar.
