Drawing on momentum of the Reel Women Real Change workshops we held around the world - programming that your support made possible - Stories Change Power now offers professional development in advocacy communications.
This summer, we hosted a 30-minute webinar outlining three key needs that emerged from interviews in early 2023 with new professionals, organizational leaders, and nonprofit funders. We also shared how our people-centered and research-based approach will meet those needs.
After a decade of using stories to inform, advocate, and change laws, policies, and systems, p.h. balanced films is now Stories Change Power!
If you heard this exciting update last Friday as a subscriber to our newsletter, please consider this message an extra thank youfor being part of our journey for so many years.
If this is news to you, keep reading!
Inspired by the work you supported - namely, p.h. balanced films' Reel Women Real Change workshops - we have developed professional development programming in advocacy communications. Rooted in the same belief that skillful communication is central to solving every problem facing humankind, we are expanding beyond filmmaking for change and into programming for mission-driven organizations.
We help team members - from new professionals to experienced leadership - make the most of their time, talent, funding, and opportunities through people-centered, research-based programming anchored in respect, candor. and growth.
On Wednesday, June 28, at 12:30 pm ET, we're hosting a 30-minute webinar to share more about our next chapter.
Either way, I am deeply grateful to you for supporting the impact that inspired this next iteration of our work. Thank you for understanding the power of story and believing in the changemakers seeking to make the world more just, equitable, and peaceful for all of us.
Have you ever intended to tell someone something and thought about it so often that you were positive you'd already told them... only it turns out you hadn't? That happened just now when I began this quarterly update, only to realize that the last time I wrote you was in November after the Austin Film Festival, which means I've not yet wished you, wonderful GlobalGiving supporter, a happy 2023 - nor have I shared some BIG NEWS for p.h. balanced films.
As we turned the calendar on 2022, I detailed this change in full on Medium (<-- that is a "friend link" meaning it won't count against the monthly 5 article limit for non-members). In short, I have returned to p.h. balanced films full-time to grow us from a 100% volunteer-run effort into a fully-funded, justice-centered, and sustainable organization. I'm in the midst of foundational conversations with women in the fields of advocacy, communications, and film to inform how we reboot Reel Women Real Change in a U.S. setting. While I am not drawing a salary (living without rent or mortgage makes that possible), we are able to cover current expenses thanks to your generosity.
We have exciting developments ahead in 2023 and I look forward to sharing more in future updates! If you have questions or would like to learn more in the interim, please contact me anytime: email@example.com
