Periscope for Nonprofits

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

6:00p.m. - 6:30p.m. Socializing

6:30p.m. - 8:00p.m. Discussion


Live streaming has been recently thrust into the limelight with the release of Periscope--a free mobile app that allows any user to livestream and broadcast from wherever they are. How do you know if Periscope is right for your nonprofit and if it is, how can you use it effectively?

In this session, we'll explore the how-tos of Periscope, what's good about it, what's not so good, and show clear examples of how you can leverage the app to better communicate with your donors and supporters.

Featured Presenter:

Caroline Avakian

Caroline Avakian, Founder, SourceRise/Managing Partner, Socialbrite

Caroline Avakian is an Emmy-nominated TV correspondent, communications strategist, and social entrepreneur.

Caroline is a recognized practitioner and speaker in the use of technology and new media for human rights and global development. Her work has taken her from the halls of the United Nations, where she trains UN member states and NGOs on the use of technology for human rights and diplomacy, to refugee camps in East Africa where she's partnered with refugee women and youth on digital storytelling projects. Caroline is the managing partner of Socialbrite—a leading social media for nonprofits consultancy and digital learning hub—and in 2014, she founded SourceRise, an award-winning digital platform connecting journalists to on-the-ground experts during humanitarian crises.
