Workshop: Communication Skills in Social Organisations
20 March 11:00 - 21 March 14:00
One of the main needs of organisations fighting for social transformation is to get their messages across to society through the media. In a world where there is so much information, it is more important than ever to understand how the media ecosystem works and to have the knowledge to communicate effectively.
This online workshop on spokespersons and communication skills arises from the need for people in social movements to have specific knowledge and practical tools to deal with the public and the media.
Women’s groups, racialised and migrant people, LGTBI, among others, are the ones who usually have more difficulties to be recognised as political subjects. This denial often prevents them from telling their own stories and assuming leadership in their organisations.
We all have a communicative potential that can be worked on and strengthened with workshops like this one. The key is to identify strengths and weaknesses, correct mistakes and reinforce successes. Communicating properly is something that can be learned.
Dates: 20th and 21st March, from 11 to 14h
