Lost in translation? How do we communicate what we do?

Our next forum will be titled Lost in translation? How do we communicate what we do?

It will be a discussion-based forum guided by our amazing working group members, Mercedes Iacoviello from Proyecto Salta Violeta, Vanessa Piana from Somar IAAs, Anice Do Nascimento from Projeto O Sorriso de Mondalisa, and Natashya Sheppherd from Dogs for Good!

Description: This will be an interactive member forum where we look to provide a safe space for idea sharing, problem solving, and peer collaboration to build a supportive community.
  • Prior to or during the Member Forum, we would love if you shared ideas around some challenges around communication at this link: https://forms.office.com/e/pn1kN0qK69. Here are some ideas to help you get started:
    • How to make what we do clearer for whoever we are communicating with.
    • Introducing a change in terminology.
    • How to make sure we are communicating effectively (preserving privacy while being engaging on social media).
    • Communicating with different groups regarding the services you provide (i.e., general public, professionals, journalists).
    • How to handle communication on social media.
If these ideas are already written within your practice, you are welcome to upload any documents you have related to this topic in this shared OneDrive here (this will be shared with other members as well): https://aaiiint-my.sharepoint.com/:f:/g/personal/administration_aai-int_org/EsxGhkHggCRMpDJ0MZxYs7YBqQRxqK9mAD_86r93wOxC5g?e=Fc141V

We are excited for some rich discussions!
