Tomorrow, July 27th, I am excited to be teaming up with The Communications Network to lead an online discussion about the interesting research behind Moving Up.
During this one-hour webinar, we will examine how social sciences are transforming our understanding about how and why people engage with their world and the issues we face as a society. I’ll share stories on how Moving Up has engaged individuals from all walks of life, and notably how it has engaged academics in new research surrounding the narrative of opportunity and inequality.
I will be joined by researchers Mary Beth Oliver from Penn State University and Rachel Lise Ruttan from Northwestern University, both of whom will share key findings from their latest studies, including answers to questions like: Are people who have overcome a struggle more compassionate to those who are currently struggling? Can music alone reduce stigma?
The Communications Network is a nonprofit organization comprised of social sector leaders from foundations, nonprofits and consulting firms across the globe who share the belief that smart, strategic communications have the power to transform society and improve lives. The Network is the premier leadership organization for nonprofit communications professionals. While this webinar might be of special interest to people who work on issues and causes, I think many of you will find it both informative and helpful.
I hope you can join us.
