Event description
Join ComNetwork Los Angeles for a free, interactive workshop led by Michael Kass, a leading voice and practitioner of ethical storytelling.

About this Event

As part of this discussion, we’ll take a closer look at what it means to take an “ethical” approach to storytelling – both in terms of the types of stories we tell and how we take care of our storytellers. The workshop will also cover tools that you can take back to your organization, and tips for how to integrate these concepts around ethical storytelling into the work you’re already doing.

Please RSVP above. Due to the experiential format of this workshop, we will be capping attendance at 60 people and you must register in advance to participate.

Whether or not you can make it to the afternoon workshop, everyone is invited to join us for happy hour at Imperial Western Beer Company starting at 5:00pm (no RSVP necessary for happy hour).
