The Empower Summit will include 21 unique workshops, divided along seven tracks. Check out some of our confirmed workshops on the Communications track:


Getting Your Message Across the Media: Strategies for Raising Your Voice. This workshop will explore how you can be seen and heard in the media, whether it is for yourself, your organization, or your community. Confirmed Speakers include Seth Berkman, a contributing reporter at The New York Times and Scott Wong, a senior reporter at The Hill.


Tips for Writing Impactful Op-Eds. Join us for an exclusive op-ed training workshop led by David Swerdlick of the Washington Post. David will explain the key to writing an opinion piece, the art of pitching, and the value of expressing your opinion in the written form. As an experienced editor, David will share his perspectives on what he looks for in opinions and editorials, and tricks of the trade.


Inspiring With Storytelling. Drawing on experiences from trial advocacy, lessons on leadership and persuasion from the Harvard Kennedy School, and a filmmaker’s principles on compelling storytelling, trial attorney Charles Jung will facilitate an experiential workshop on how to inspire, connect, and lead with the power of your voice. Participants will hear and practice the elements of a compelling story.
