One of the most important ways to communicate your nonprofit’s impact is by sharing stories of those who are benefitting from your work. Ethical storytelling challenges us to move beyond photo waivers and media releases into a cooperative effort with constituents to tell their stories – in their words and on their terms. Shifting the narrative may be more achievable than you think, and can have a substantial, lasting impact on your organization!
In this session, Jennifer Grove Camacho from PLOT My Story will provide a primer for understanding and implementing ethical storytelling practices for your organization. We’ll also be joined by Amy Hudson and Ashley Wiley of Food Well Alliance, who will share their experiences crafting and enacting a Storyteller Bill of Rights.
This session is for development, fundraising, marketing, communications, and operational staff of GCN member organizations. Member dues must be current when the session takes place to receive access.
