Future of Social Impact Media (Online Panel & Networking)

November 9, 2020 @ 18:00 - 19:30 CST

Join the panel conversation to learn about the future of media post-election and the ways media-driven movements are being impacted.

“Free and independent media underpin any vibrant democracy.” ― Oscar Auliq-Ice

If we analyze the state of media, we understand the state of our national movements. In light of the election and the polarizing divisiveness of the “fake news” era, we are diving into the reality of media, specifically social impact media.

Did your social impact journey begin with a media piece on a topic that opened your eyes? Many journeys do, so how do we secure this media presence for future generations of activists and impact-makers to come?

Social impact media is the journalistic and creative content that moves issue areas forward. Without a growing awareness and coverage of impact topics, advocates are left without a movement of people to support. And, as we’ve seen, social impact media has a deep effect on politics, business trends, and philanthropy as well.

Join us for this expert panel with organizations and individuals leading world-changing media. Hear from individuals about the state of media around the 2020 election, and the outlook it provides for all journalists and content makers moving forward.

All Be Social Change panels include a short networking opportunity at the beginning of the event in order to strengthen the inspiration, connections, and collaborations among people who are leading change.
