Today, it is more important than ever to help make our communities, state, and world better places. But how can we do this from where we are? Social media is a platform that allows all of us to be heard, motivate others, and get involved. This interactive and engaging workshop is designed for women and influencers of any age (including teens) and focuses on how social media can impact our communities and help to make a difference. Jess and Niki provide ideas for getting involved, including the what, where, and how. They share specific examples of how social media can make a strong, positive impact (from Utah and beyond), while also identifying potentially harmful uses of media and instructing attendees on how to avoid such negativity. Finally, they share some key guidelines on how to maintain and expand a social media presence that reflects your authentic self, while increasing your efforts to positively impact the community.

Have you ever wanted to speak up, share your ideas, or express an opinion—in different ways—but felt like you did not quite know how? Our communities are stronger when we have a wide range of distinct voices represented, yet women are much less likely to speak out or share their written opinions in public settings. This may be because women do not feel they have enough “expertise” to share their thoughts, or even because they hesitate to add their words to a sea of confused or angry voices. In this session, Liz and Jordan teach from their own professional experience and backgrounds about how important it is for women to find their voices and use them confidently, respectfully, and with authority. Viewers will first learn about how to identify where their voices are needed and then receive expert advice on how to express themselves powerfully in order to expand their influence for good.
