The voice of mission driven organizations
When and Where
03 May 2022, 16:00 – 17:00 EEST
About the event
In this conversation we will introduce you to DigiComs - a social business model that aims to build professionals in digital communication of causes and activism and connect them with working professionals in organizations with a mission.
Who are the organizations with a mission - NGOs, social entrepreneurs and social businesses, civic initiatives, all set out to change the world for the better. What they have in common is their commitment to a specific cause and the fact that very often they are focused on achieving their socially significant mission and are not always able to present themselves, their battles and achievements to the general public.
Impact Drive digital communicators are there to support civil society organizations in this aspect of their work - to create content for the communication needs of a particular initiative or project in a professional and sustainable manner and respecting the guiding principles for the specific cause.
