    Think...

    Embracing full immersion. This isn’t just about writing compelling stories or creating beautiful documentaries or even about captivating audiences. This is so much more. You’re stepping into people’s hearts and minds, seeking to understand why they think, feel, and live the way they do. You’re reading, engaging in, actively reflecting on, living, and breathing the topics, conversations, and change we’re experiencing. Living with people like Ibu Mugirah for multiple days, you're ready to build trust and relationships with everyone you profile and to travel throughout our planet and your backyard to research, collaborate with, and tell the stories of various people and organizations doing incredible work across all aspects of social, environmental, and economic change. To be able to collaborate with team members who focus on math and literacy integration, writing, music, visual experience, and educator engagement, to be able to write stories and make videos that captivate the hearts, minds, and imaginations of kids, to be able to lead the production of written and video content from draft to launch, you must first think of Content Innovation in this way. Think ethnography meets social entrepreneurship meets academics meets impact measurement meets empathy/collaboration practice -- then you can pick up the pen or the camera.​
