As the world of social and digital media continues to evolve at a rapid pace, we Mad Hatters may often wonder— should our Foundations be using Facebook and Twitter? Does our website communicate our Foundation’s mission and message? What communication tools would help us best engage our target audience? And, what can we do with a limited amount of time available?

These days, there’s no shortage of online and offline tactics and tools you can use. But how can you make sure that you’re using the right ones, and how can you do it with limited resources - especially time? The Mad Hatters will be joined by Bilen Mesfin Packwood of Change Consulting LLCwho will help demystify the world of social media and communications and explain why it all boils down to one rule - start with strategy. Bilen is the founder and principal of Change Consulting, a social change communications agency based in Oakland. She has established a reputation as a trusted strategic communicator and advisor to some of Northern California’s leading changemakers.

Please join us at Rosenberg Foundation for soup, salad and sandwiches. 

Mad Hatter Co-chairs: Lisa Kawahara, Grants Administrator, Friedman Family Foundation and Linda Moll, Business and Grants Manager, Rosenberg Foundation
