Keynote Plenary Session Overview
Professor John D. Trybus, Ph.D.
Executive Director, Georgetown University’s Center for Social Impact Communication
The Future of Storytelling for Social Impact:
What Will Change, What Won’t, and Why it Matters
You may not consider yourself to be a storyteller, but you are. We cannot live through a single day without sharing stories and being influenced by them. The process of storytelling is one of the things that makes us uniquely human, and the telling, listening, and amplification of stories can and does create social impact. Yet, we must also evolve how we utilize this ancient form of connection in strategically modern ways in order to realize more ethical and equitable social impact through our work changing a child’s story across Pennsylvania. Join story scientist, Dr. John Trybus of Georgetown University, on a journey through the past, present, and future of storytelling for social impact.
