Communication plays a key supporting role in ongoing efforts to advocate for affordable and supportive housing and in efforts to end homelessness. But more often than not, those working at the community-level simply don't have the capacity or resources to develop effective communication strategies. In this workshop, participants will learn the step-by-step approach to developing a communication strategy with limited time and resources. This includes the basic elements of a strategy, tips for getting the message out, and handy free tools. The Homeless Hub's use of design and team collaboration will be used as a case study. The workshop will be lead by two experienced communication professionals working in the non-profit housing and homelessness sectors.
Speakers: Stephanie Vasko, Communications Manager, The Homeless Hub – Canadian Observatory on Homelessness (Nat’l) & Caitlin Boros, Marketing and Communications Manager,
