New & Emerging Professionals

Join a Learning Community

As a new or emerging professional in the field of advocacy communications, you want to make a difference. You want your work to have meaning and be part of shaping a better future. 

Far too often, people in your position begin with high hopes, but quickly find themselves overwhelmed. Your background, whether in journalism, public policy, mass communications, or another focus, may have provided experience with key slices of your role (or the role you're seeking), but other aspects are brand new.

You may be inundated with ideas and requests from the rest of your organization, including leadership, but your team may be too small to execute all of them. You may find yourself as a team of one reporting to someone whose professional experience does not include communications, which leaves you wondering where to go for guidance. Whether lack of budget, time, research, or any other reason, you may not have the programs and platforms that make your job more efficient, and hiring additional team members might not be an option right now.

In essence, new (or new-ish) professional, you have the heart and determination but are still growing in practical experience.

We are here to help. Participate in our small-by-design communities to gain insight from experts and the benefits of a peer group as you swiftly learn the essentials of advocacy communications. Joining will equip you – a professional at the frontlines of efforts that inform law, policy, and systems – to make a positive impact and build an effective and rewarding career.

Immerse yourself in the Nine Rights of advocacy communications, including storytelling strategies, bridging divides in the current political climate, fostering collaboration across your organization and sector, and maintaining a healthy balance – both professionally and personally.

Once you complete the course, you will be paired with an experienced mentor to support you for at least one year. Your mentor will provide you with guidance, knowledge, and practical skills tailored to your needs.

At Stories Change Power, we know working can be both exhilarating and challenging. Our program will equip you with a strong foundation and a supportive community to help you thrive.
