We are seeing a paradigm shift unfold before us: COVID-19 and the national protests seeking to address police violence and deeply entrenched racism in American life have made plain that communication is crucial.
That community matters.
That learning and adapting are critical.
And that clear, compassionate leadership is essential.
Put simply, these crises have made our network more relevant than ever and gathering more important.
If you work in comms for good, you don’t have to go it alone.
We’re going to bring to life the ideas, insights, inspiration... and fun we’ve built together over the last 40 years — online.
V will experiment, innovate, include, and borrow and build on what’s best about our field, Network community, and Atlanta — online.
Nikole Hannah-Jones, Pulitzer Prize winning creator of The New York Times's extraordinary 1619 Project is among our confirmed featured speakers for V.
Joy Harjo, the first ever Native woman to be named US Poet Laureate, will also share her journey and wisdom.
Registration for V opens in Summer 2020. Visit Frequently Asked Questions for more details.
