Wine on One- Social Media and Work-Life Integration

July 11, 2017

Friending volunteers... at mentioning board members on Twitter... LinkingIn with staff... attending networking events three evenings a week... dinner with a colleague from another organization. 

Forget work-life balance, for those of us that live the nonprofit life, work-life integration is where we're trending.    

How do you use your social media presence in a way that promotes your personal brand, enhances your organization, and lets your authentic voice be heard to those who you want to hear it? How much social should be in your networking?  It's a complicated issue, so Marjorie and Natalie grabbed a bottle of wine to figure out some answers.
