Storytelling for Change: Advancing Equity Through the Stories We Tell

Tuesday, October 25, 2022 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm (virtual) 

Humans are hardwired for story, making storytelling a powerful tool for nonprofits to build awareness and support for their mission. However, it’s crucial that the stories we tell in our fundraising communications and beyond do no harm. Join us for an interactive discussion about the best practices to tell compelling stories that are also collected ethically, retain the dignity of the storyteller, and advance equity.

This session has been approved for 1 point of CFRE credit.
