Ethical Storytelling for Nonprofits and Philanthropy
Event Category 

Join NPQ’s Senior Correspondent and Investigations Editor, Amy Costello, for a complimentary,  one-hour, hands-on webinar about ethical storytelling and effective nonprofit communications. In a candid and practical presentation, Amy and her long-time producer, Freddie Boswell, will discuss the myriad ethical challenges they have confronted while covering nonprofits, philanthropy and international aid in their podcast, Tiny Spark. 

Communications staff and nonprofit leaders will be challenged to wrestle with myriad ethical considerations when portraying the lives of those their organizations seek to help, whether these individuals live in the US or abroad; many of whom are in crisis or have experienced trauma. Using examples from their own journalistic work, this webinar will include practical discussions on topics such as:

  • How to meaningfully interview and portray people who have experienced trauma
  • Questions to ask yourself before writing about vulnerable communities
  • How to report on a project’s failures or shortcomings
