Breaking Through in the New Media Paradigm

Every other year, the Council brings together recognized thought leaders from both the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors for a conversation exploring topics of critical interest to the future of the social sector. Save the date to join us this year as we explore The New Media Paradigm. One of the most highly regarded convenings for foundation and nonprofit leaders in the country, the Spring Colloquium brings together recognized thought leaders to discuss topics of critical interest to the future of the social sector.

Industries change…evolve…reform themselves. Media has transformed more rapidly in the past decade than any industry in history. First, digital began upending the traditional news model, diminishing capacity for meaningful coverage. Then came the rise of social, eroding our attention spans and driving more and more of us into newsfeed silos. And now, we have bots. Fake News. Not just media overload, but growing concerns about the presence of actual truth.

What does this new paradigm mean for the Social Sector, where dedicated foundations and nonprofits are working to improve our communities, and foster change? With so much content noise bombarding us all day, how do we make sense of it all, and help our constituents do the same? In this increasingly segregated and untrusting information environment, how do we take best advantage of evolving platforms and technologies, to advance our causes and foster genuine debate around complex issues? How do we break through?
