Digital media platforms and technologies have created new possibilities and introduced new challenges for people working across sectors to create social impact. Changemakers and other social action workers sometimes find it difficult to navigate the constantly changing online world and use the tools available to advance their causes.

The Center on Digital Culture and Society (CDCS) at the Annenberg School for Communication and the Center on Social Impact Strategy (CSIS) at the School of Social Policy and Practice (SP2) aim to help meet this need, and have jointly launched a new executive education program entitled Digital Media for Social Impact (DMSI).

Annenberg’s first executive education offering, the program combines action-oriented education with leading scholarship on digital media and social change. It’s designed for media industry professionals, activists, community organizers, nonprofit leaders, and social entrepreneurs looking to build mission-aligned digital media strategies.
