Leaders and organizers around the world are using public narratives to enable leadership and move communities to action. Since 2006, the practice has been taught to more than 32,000 people in 25 countries working across domains ranging from healthcare, education, and politics.

Join us on Nov 17th to learn how public narrative is being used in diverse cultural, geographic and institutional contexts around the world!

In the event, Dr. Emilia Aiello will present findings from the 2020 Public Narrative Impact Survey that explores how public narrative is being used by individuals as a leadership practice within different domains, and the impact it has had on leadership development at the individual, community, societal, and institutional level.

We will be joined by a panel of speakers who will share how they are using public narrative in their work and communities:

  • Chuck Seaca from the Alaska Humanities Forum in the United States, working with youth and Indigenous communities in Alaska
  • Florence Kayemba from Stakeholder Democracy Network in Nigeria, building public engagement on issues driving and enabling conflict in the oil rich region of the Niger Delta
  • Marina Pavlic from Serbia on the Move and Kreni-Promeni in Serbia, organizing and mobilizing communities in campaigns on issues ranging from health policy to cultural norms
