When digital campaigns can raise millions of dollars and influence policy in a matter of weeks, one thing is clear -- the ways we communicate strongly influence the form and substance of community conversations. Get in the driver's seat and make today's communications tools work for you. In this session, you will learn the latest tips for effective, equity-driven communication while refreshing your knowledge of time-honored best practices. Create a plan tailored for your indicators project's budget, goals and capacity. Focused content will include social media, scaling for a small budget, and applying an equity lens to help indicators drive positive change. This workshop is ideal for practitioners who primarily work in communications as well as leaders who would like to apply a communications lens across the breadth of a project. It is appropriate for all indicators projects, whether digital or paper-based.
