Advances in digital communication have changed the ways we receive and share data and information, market our services and products, and how we communicate with stakeholders. This session will examine the ways that digital communication and social media have altered the landscape and grown the impact of our work such as the ability to foster civic engagement. However there are often unintended consequences, especially as it relates to identity and privacy for the communities we serve.
