By the People For the People: Ethical Storytelling for Impact


What does it mean to put people, not pixels, at the center of your digital strategy? Join us for an honest, constructive, and provocative conversation about honoring the humanity of those whose stories we tell. Engage with dynamic leaders committed to creating a culture of ethical storytelling in their nonprofits. And learn how their approaches are transforming the way their organizations use technology.

Why ethical storytelling? Most organizations agree that, in order to stand out in a crowded, noisy world, we need to tell powerful, compelling stories. Stories help raise money, attract volunteers, demonstrate impact, and build community. Unfortunately, all too often our stories tread into challenging ethical waters and run the risk of alienating or unintentionally exploiting the very people we seek to serve. Imagine what we can achieve when our stories – and use of technology – embody our values and allow our communities to co-create with us.

Learning Outcomes

  • Develop an understanding of “ethical storytelling” – provide a framework and vocabulary you can take back to your organization.
  • Start to uncover unconscious biases in our organizations to the detriment of the people we serve and our missions.
  • Learn how to share your impact using inclusive techniques that lift up the voices/ humanity of those you serve.

Target Audience

Anyone interested in crafting a more ethical, inclusive digital strategy that builds community and deepens impact.
