ColorComm, the nation’s premier membership organization for women of color in communications, has announced a partnership with the United Nations Foundation in honor of ColorComm’s 5th Anniversary for the chance to award 5 ColorComm Fellows the opportunity to attend the UN Foundation’s Social Good Summit.
The Social Good Summit is a two-day conference examining the impact of technology and new media on social good initiatives around the world. The summit will be held September 18th-19th in New York City and will consist of Master Classes, a Digital Lounge, Fireside Chats, Receptions and more. The Social Good Summit unites a dynamic community of global leaders and activists to discuss solutions to the greatest challenges our world faces.
The five fellows will receive an exclusive preview of events, access and networking opportunities. To be chosen for the fellowship, participants will engage in an Instagram media campaign where they are tasked to creatively answer the following question: “Where do you want to see the world in 2030?” with event hashtags #ColorComm5 and #2030Now. We encourage the ColorComm Community to participate.
“This fellowship will be truly significant and beneficial to the unique backgrounds and professions of our network and start the conversation on how the goals of ColorComm and United Nations Foundation can be intertwined to work together,” says Lauren Wesley Wilson, Founder and President of ColorComm.
ColorComm is focused on expanding its global reach and this fellowship opportunity will help raise awareness around important global issues to our members and community.
The Instagram campaign is open to the public and concludes Monday, September 12. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, September 13, 2016.
