Stories Matter: Equity in Storytelling for the Digital Age

Video and other digital storytelling are critical tools for nonprofits as they seek to communicate, educate, and fundraise. But storytelling also represent a minefield for organizations seeking to promote racial equity and diversity. Organizational stories can reinforce existing biases or become critical tools in the fight for inclusion.

How do we manage these challenges? How does our storytelling relate to our overall work in promoting equity and diversity?

In this session, we’ll look at some principles of equity in storytelling and hear from practitioners about how they navigate the competing priorities, access issues, and work against their own personal and organizational biases. We’ll also look at tools and technology that can help us create more inclusive and participatory storytelling structures.
