This session will be all about how to share stories to shatter stigma and soften hearts. Storytelling is one of the most effective forms of communication available. If we are looking to break barriers and give our missions, and those we serve a voice, we should be sharing stories! But sometimes it can be challenging for nonprofits to know what stories to share while honoring anonymity and promoting inclusion.
This session will help provide practical tips and techniques for sharing stories ethically while protecting identities and avoiding exploitation.
- How-To Share Effective Stories: Telling Stories That Change Minds and Open Hearts.
- How-To Protect Anonymity: Tips and Techniques for Sharing Stories When You Can’t Share Identities.
- How-To Avoid Exploitation and Improve Inclusion: Maintaining Integrity and Promoting Equality.
