Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 17, 2013 5:23 PM

I love this article because it points to 3 specific stories that need to be shared in order for social change to happen.


If you are a business or nonprofit focused on making a difference in the world and advocating for social change, these 3 stories are critical to craft and tell.


As the author Cynthia Starks says, the stories need to be:

  1. The story of Self -- why YOU are passionate about this cause. This is the story that most people/organizations ignore. But if people don't know who you are and why you are involved, minimal trust and influence will be built. 
  2. The story of Us -- which is a story of inclusiveness. In crafting social change stories, people want to come together in community. 
  3. The story of Now -- which is a story that builds urgency and galvanizes action.


This is a quick article with more insights than I shared. So go read it :)
