The Art of Advocacy

Why storytelling matters in philanthropy

The media plays an influential role in shaping the funding priorities and public attention. This exclusive members-only online session explores the role of advocacy and storytelling in philanthropy and impact work.

Hear from Cristi Hegranes, CEO of the Global Press Institute, a US-based nonprofit training local women to report stories in their own geographic locales to affect change, and Muna AbuSulayman, an international development leader and a partner at Transform VC, a Silicon Valley-based venture capital investment and advisory firm.

The session will be convened by long-time Circle collaborators, Andine Sutarjar and Sharna Goldseker, from 21/64, a US-based nonprofit offering multi-generational philanthropy advisory.
