Free Webinar Opportunity from CT NOW: Effective Messaging for Feminist Candidates & Activists

We are excited to announce a free webinar opportunity from CT’s chapter of NOW, open to all Indiana NOW members. See below or on their Facebook page here for more details! We hope that you take advantage of this great opportunity to improve your chapter’s messaging strategies!

“Our voices have the power to inform, educate, entertain and affect change. And today — perhaps more than ever before — each and every one of our voices needs to be heard. Presented by CT NOW President Cindy Wolfe Boynton and The Rising Tides Founder Eileen Scully, “Effective Messaging for Feminist Candidates and Activists” is designed for anyone working to become a more effective speaker or writer, as well as to amplify the voices of feminist candidates and activists. Those who attend this interactive webinar will receive a solid overview of the skills needed to:

* Effectively harness the power of your voice
* Craft a compelling message
* Target your message to specific audiences
* Focus and organize your thoughts
* Educate without being preachy
* Communicate with confidence that shows
* Connect with your audience and leave a lasting memory

Because persuasion is an art – and change and resistance almost always require persuasion – a look at how our brains process words and language will also be covered. We’ll also discuss the specific words that tend to cause our brains to take notice, better focus and pay attention, and which can be incorporated into our speeches and writing for greater effect. PDF handouts will provided.

Please email questions to president@now-ct.org. Hope to see you there!”
