NEW DATE Ethical Storytelling: Holding Vulnerability&Avoiding Exploitation

Ethical Storytelling: Holding Vulnerability & Avoiding Exploitation-Part 1Storytelling is one of the most powerful currencies for human connection that exists. And it is one that is frequently used in the nonprofit and helping fields to amplify awareness, garner funding, create connection, validate donations and volunteering, and so much more. We tell stories to invite others in and to invite participation in the work being done. We often tell stories with great intentions. But, how do we ensure that we're not using someone's story or exploiting their experiences for our own gain? How do we ensure that we're empowering and amplifying someone's voice, rather than exploiting them and their vulnerability? How can we ethically tell someone's story while describing what we do? With the power of storytelling comes great responsibility. In this mini-series, we'll be exploring these questions, and the ways that you can ensure that you're ethically using storytelling in your organization and personal life without exploitation.This workshop is interactive and experiential, so you'll get a chance to engage in hands activities during the workshop, in addition to walking away with new knowledge.
