How we talk about our work can make all the difference in the level of resources we attract to achieve our missions. Words that inspire, connect and uplift our communities also inspire our donors. How we engage our audiences to support our causes – whether it be in public policy, movement building, or a fundraising appeal - truly matters to the level of success and response rate we receive. The words we use can even make a difference in our organizational culture and how well we achieve our mission goals. With the best of intentions, we make mistakes in our messaging that, social science research shows, render them ineffective. Often, making subtle, correcting shifts can feel counter-intuitive.  At this year's conference, #MANOAC18, learn the insights that will make your communications come alive and connect more effectively to your audiences! 


Maryland Nonprofits Annual Conference keynote speaker, MAKANI THEMBA, Chief Strategist, Higher Ground Change Strategies, has decades of experience steeped in the research and practice of effective framing for change communications.  She brings a racial justice lens to her work and has an accessible and inclusive way of helping us think differently about how we communicate with and engage diverse audiences. 

Maryland Nonprofits annual conference will feature a full range of workshops on communications, messaging and framing to ensure your organization sets the right tone and gets greater results in every message you send.
