ANR WINTER SCHOOL
Communicating Your Story: Developing Your Communication Strategy

In this multi-day virtual course, we’ll work through the process of creating a basic communications strategy and plan to communicate your ANR story. A template will be provided, enabling participants to answer specific questions and work on their plan in small chunks. A virtual Q&A period will be provided at the end of the webinar each day, with the opportunity for “office hours” – via individual Zoom calls - with the instructor each afternoon. At the conclusion of the week, you’ll have a simple plan that will work for you.

The process we engage in will help you consider and answer the following:

  • What are your overall goals/objectives? How do they align with ANR communications goals/messages and brand messages?
  • Who is your audience?
  • What do you want your audience to know, feel, or do (behavior change)?
  • What are 1-3 key messages/ideas you’d like to communicate?
  • What social platform(s) might be the best fit for your strategy, your audience(s), your interests, and your abilities?
  • How will you measure your success (analytics)?
  • Tactics and timing: what will you do, and when will you do it?

Participants will be provided access to a range of resources and tools to support their efforts, including samples, tip and FAQ sheets, guidelines, and more. Attending each session is recommended.

Focused Conversations
This is a group facilitation method that can be used at meetings or trainings as well as in one on one conversations.  A focused conversation is an excellent way to provide structure to conversations that might otherwise travel all over the map, saving time and energy. 

Focused conversation is a method that helps to:

-Create meaningful dialog
-Broaden a group’s perspective
-Elicit clear ideas and conclusions
-Allow the entire group to participate

Intercultural Competence

 

The development of intercultural competence, defined as the ability to work with people from different cultures, is critical to bridge across difference. In the UC ANR 4-H YDP, a team of professionals coalesced to begin to change the organizational culture of the 4-H Youth Development Program -- a 100-year-old youth program that had not adapted well to the demographic change in Californian communities, where 53% of youth are Latino. The Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI©) was used to define baseline data and progress.

Join Fe and the team to learn how this was accomplished and lessons learned.
