We will never see a just, equitable, and peaceful world without adjusting current laws, policies, and systems. Even well-intentioned laws, policies, and systems 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 provide professional development in the emerging field of advocacy and public interest communications.
Our professional development programming equips mission-driven organizations to achieve their purpose in furtherance of a just, equitable, and peaceful world. We bring together new professionals to share best practices in advocacy, storytelling, and bridging divides, while building community, encouraging collaboration, and preventing burnout. Our cohorts encourage inter-organizational collaboration and all new professionals are matched with a mentor for ongoing support.
If every mission-driven organization fully harnesses the power of advocacy communications, law, policy, and systems will support a just, equitable, and peaceful world. Effective communication is essential to an organization's impact, and professional development is essential to effective communication. We support individuals and the organizations at which they work today and throughout their careers. We increase the impact of organizations, decrease training time, and decrease staff turnover.
