Digital Capital Week (DC Week), a 10-day festival focused on technology, innovation and all things digital in the nation’s capital, is well on its way. There have been parties, receptions, panels, brain storming sessions and wonderful opportunities to network with programmers, developers, geeks, techies and the end of the day… sponsors and clients. Tomorrow I present a panel with my good friend and colleague, Shannon Mouton, the Social Media and Mobile Marketing Manger, for Laureate Higher Education Group. Our panel is covering a topic that is near and dear to my heart, using Social Media 4 Social Good. It is my belief that every organization can use the digital space to create change, impact social consciousness and drive home a call-to-action. Whether your goal is reduce your carbon footprint, fight childhood obesity, or to eradicate poverty, you can use social media as an effective tool to communicate your objectives.
The Social Media 4 Social Good panel is part of DC Week’s Gov & Org 2.0 Day. The day was organized as a way of focusing on issues and opportunities related to governments and non-profits. Social Media 4 Social Good will specifically concentrate on how nonprofits and for-profits alike can use social media to communicate an organization’s mission, build communities and support outreach efforts. We’ll talk about ways to connect with clients and community members in engaging two-way conversation that will be sure to bring about positive social changes.
