This event is part of the Benevolent Media Festival, an all-volunteer project celebrating storytelling and design for good, organized during Digital Capital Week. You have tens of thousands of Facebook fans and a popular, mission-driven blog. You know your way around hashtags, SEO, and conversion rates. Now how do you take your social media strategy to the next level? Learn how to use social media for everything from internal communication to internships, CEO visibility to capital campaigns, and everything in between.The panel discussion will be held at the World Resources Institute, a global environmental think tank.
The Benevolent Media Festival is a celebration of D.C.’s community of storytellers and designers dedicated to social and environmental good. Members of the community who identify as “benevolent media creators” are invited to host and organize their own lectures, workshops, performances, networking events or other activities, located at multiple venues across the city, that compel audiences to care about a cause, take action on an issue, or promote a point of view through strategic and inspiring multimedia.
