In 2023, we are rebooting our workshops to equip women changemakers to create a more just, equitable, and peaceful world through advocacy communications. Our programming shares best practices in storytelling, advocacy, and bridging divides, while building community, preventing burnout, and providing mentorship. If you care about equity and appreciate the fact that stories power change and stories change power, join us in creating a world in which important stories promote positive change.
We will never see a fair, just, and peaceful world without adjusting current laws, policies, and practices. Even well-intentioned laws, policies, and practices fail when they are not well-informed. The organizations working to inform policymakers and advocating for change are only as effective as their communications efforts, but many do not have the budget or bandwidth to train new team members in the emerging field of advocacy and public interest communications.
Our program equips women at the frontlines of the communications efforts that inform law, policy, and practice. The pillars of our curriculum are: advocacy; storytelling; bridging divides; professional collaboration; and personal pacing. Our holistic approach ensures smart communications strategy for advocacy and public interest-minded organizations. Each cohort builds community and all graduates are matched with a mentor.
Strong communications are essential to an organization's impact. Our workshops not only support women in the field of advocacy and public interest communications, they support the organizations at which those women work today and throughout their careers. Our program equips graduates to increase the impact of their organizations, decreases the training time needed by leadership and other staff, and decreases staff turnover. In 2023, we are rebranding and moving from volunteer-run to full-time.
