Aligning Your Messages to Maximize Impact: California’s Efforts to Improve Access to High-Quality Public Arts Education
Limited Capacity filling up

Without access to a creative education, students are blocked out of one in six jobs in California. Spitfire, a strategic communication firm working on the front lines of the fight for gender equity, is pleased to partner with Create CA and the Los Angeles County Arts Commission on their campaigns to increase access to quality arts education to provide students with the skills they need to succeed in college, career and life.

In this combined skills-based and issue-based training, learn about how local and statewide leaders are aligning their messages to maximize impact, using the Arts Education Data Project and the Declaration of Student Rights as grounding examples. Then explore how to target specific audiences that can help advance your issue, understand your audience’s values and craft messages that will resonate with their interests. Participants will have the opportunity to develop message points within Spitfire’s message box.

During this session you will learn strategies for:
• Aligning messages to maximize impact;
• Selecting a very narrow, targeted audience – one that reflects the goal you are trying to achieve and will be most likely to respond to your call to action; and
• Taking into account the values and core concerns of the target audience that will be most likely to move that audience to act.

Trainers:
Leticia Buckley, acting chief deputy/ director of communications, Los Angeles County Arts Commission

Building Resilience and Preserving Your Emotional Health in Today's World
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

It is safe to say world events are unfolding today in a way that is unlike any other time. With social media and the 24-hour news cycle, we are exposed to news, strong opinions, and calls to action constantly. Contemplating issues or taking a stand can be energizing, but having our beliefs and thoughts about events in mind so often can also be distressing and exhausting. All this can be a significant, destabilizing distraction, interrupting our daily routines and chipping away at our well-being. It's understandable if you or your family members experience increased distress in this highly charged climate - fortunately, there are ways to manage it.

Please join Seleni Institute for a session on how to best help you begin to transform distress or discomfort into resiliency – for both you and your family. In this session, you will hear from clinical experts on how to care for and empower yourself so you can also care for your family and your community in today's fractured world.

The Seleni Institute prioritizes the emotional health of individuals and families to improve the lives of our generation and future generations. With our partners, we treat, train, support, and advocate for emotional health during the family building years.

Crowdfunding: How to Raise the Money You Need to Make Change
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

At Crowdpac – we’re working to improve democracy by helping candidates and organizations raise money. Our tools are built to put power back into the hands of the people, instead of big donors and special interests. We empower our users to get more involved in the process, whether that means raising money for an organization, a candidate you support, or running for office yourself (as women, we know that if we really want to fix things, we have to get to work!)  

You can join the thousands of women who are rolling up their sleeves to fix what is broken -- whether you are a first-time candidate running for office, like Jess Phoenix, Regina Bateson, Lori Trahan, or Krish Vignarajah, or stepping up to lead organizations like Spread the Vote, Sister District Project, and One Vote at a Time.

Women are shattering barriers this year, and we’re here to help. Join our interactive workshop at the United State of Women Summit, where we’ll give you the tools you need to create and run a successful crowdfunding campaign. We’ll be joined by Kat Calvin, who will share how her organization, Spread the Vote, has raised ten of thousands of dollars online to fund their voter ID efforts.

You bring an idea you’re passionate about; we’ll help you handle the rest -- from building a targeted fundraising list, to developing a digital media strategy, to getting press and everything in between. With the help of our experts, you’ll leave our workshop with a ready-to-launch Crowdpac page as well as a personalized media kit.

If you’re:
  • Running for office
  • Thinking about it
  • Supporting your favorite candidate(s)
  • Want to raise money for your organization
  • Fundraise for a passion project or cause
Our training is for you.

What are you waiting for?
