The E-Mediat program team was thrilled to conduct the New Media for the Networked NGO Networking Conferences led by social media expert and E-Mediat curricula designer and trainer, Beth Kanter. Ms. Kanter, along with participating organizations, in-country Leadership Teams and regional experts, discussed advanced new media topics as well as showcased the impressive work of participant organizations during the conference. The E-Mediat NGO Networking Conferences included opportunities for formal and informal networking amongst all attendees.
NGO Networking Conferences included the following:
- Sessions on advanced new media topics
- Presentations by participant organization representatives sharing their social media strategy and results
- Shoulder-to-shoulder laptop coaching sessions with leading social media experts and trainers
NGO Networking Conferences also featured a “networked learning” component by connecting organizations not in attendance with portions of the conference. Key outcomes, session content, video and other materials from the each country’s conference are being shared to benefit all of the countries’ program participants.
