Hands-on Communications:  Tools & Strategies for Sharing Your Story

Every non-profit holds a complex set of stories, yet every organization struggles to express those stories on their own terms and with limited resources. Join us for a hands-on workshop to (1) learn more about how one local non-profit has built its communications approach and (2) share ideas and concerns you have about sharing your work with communities, policymakers and other external audiences.  Kath Connolly, of The Learning Community, will share examples about the organization’s work to build its external communications over the last 7 years.  We’ll also focus on the specific struggles and successes of workshop participants. What are the stories that your organization has to share?  Have you used data to your advantage? Tried social media? Created publications? This session will be based in real examples and tools, with lots of time for questions, so bring examples and come ready to share. 


 Kath Connolkathly is the Director of Partnerships at The Learning Community, a high poverty high performing public charter school in Central Falls, RI. Kath coordinates external communications, data systems, community programming, and, as at any school or non-profit, juggles other things. Kath was previously the Senior Associate Director at Brown’s Swearer Center for Public Service, supporting fellowships in community development, programs in public art and education and created Careers in the Common Good, a nationally-recognized effort to support young people seeking lives of social purpose. She worked as an exhibit developer at the Providence Children’s Museum and at SJS, a public policy consulting firm. She has also served as a consultant to local and national non-profits. Kath is a member of the board of directors of, and was a founding board member of New Urban Arts and Farm Fresh RI. She has a small art studio in her home and watches political debates like other people watch football. Kath is interested in how organizations nurture a culture of creativity while also getting things done. She is a graduate of Brown University and lives in Providence.
