“Write to Change the World” workshop coming to Denver February 27th


By

The OpEd Project is bringing its “Write to Change the World” workshop to Denver on February 27th from 10am-5pm. The workshop, which is offered in 15 cities nationwide, is coming to Colorado for the just the second time ever. If you, or someone you know, wants to have a larger public voice to change the world, join us.

What is the “Write to Change the World Workshop”?

Our dynamic day-long seminar is designed to test the limits and uses of knowledge, and what it takes to be influential on a large scale. Our approach is playful, dynamic and results-oriented—games, high stakes scenarios, and interactive thought experiments challenge you to think more expansively about what you know, why it matters, and how to use it. We explore the source of credibility; the patterns and elements of persuasion; the difference between being “right” and being effective; how to preach beyond the choir; and how to think bigger about what you know—to have more impact in the world. Participants emerge with concrete results (op-ed drafts and more), and follow-up access to our national network of high-level journalist mentors.

Who should attend?

Everyone is welcome, but we target underrepresented voices, especially women, with vital knowledge and experience: scholars, entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, civic leaders, business leaders, activists and crazy geniuses.

Why this matters

The voices and opinions we hear in the world come from an extremely narrow slice of society: mostly white, privileged, Western, and overwhelmingly male. What could we accomplish if we invested in our missing brain power?

About The OpEd Project

The OpEd Project is a social venture founded to drive more and better ideas into the world, from a wider range of voices. We are a community of journalists and thought leaders who actively share our skills, resources and connections across color, creed, class and gender lines. We train underrepresented experts to take thought leadership positions in their fields; we match them with high-level journalist mentors; and we channel the best new ideas and experts to media gatekeepers who need them, across all platforms. We have been featured in most major media. We envision a world where the best ideas, regardless of where they come from, will have a chance to be heard and to shape society and the world.

How much does it cost?
