Stanford Social Innovation Review and the Communications Network Launch Joint Blog Series

Friday, January 16, 2015

The Communications Network is partnering with the Stanford Social Innovation Review to launch Making Ideas Move, a blog series on the power of communications that will feature a series of thought pieces by leaders whose organizations use communications to make their ideas move.

Communications Network Executive Director Sean Gibbons kicked off the series this week:

You’ve heard it before—communication matters. Social sector organizations that communicate well are stronger, smarter, and significantly more effective at creating social change…

Through this [blog] series, we hope to explain why investments in communications pay enormous dividends, to demonstrate the purpose and impact of strategic communications, to examine how an idea moves, understand the power of a nonprofit brand, and more.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Center for American Progress, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Freedom to Marry, the Next Generation, Barr Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation, and others will all participate in the blog series and grapple with questions facing our sector and its communications.
