Navigating Social Media: From Your Biggest Fans to Your Worst Trolls

Recorded on August 24, 2022, 12PM ET

Social media is central to nearly everyone’s lives and it’s not going away any time soon. For a woman looking to become more engaged in her community, politically or otherwise, it can be a crucial tool for connecting with others. It’s where we spend our free time (2 hours and 3 minutes per day according to Statista), get their news (48% of Americans according to Pew Research), and start movements with hashtags (from #MeToo to #FreeBritney).

But for anyone who has ever read the comments on what seems like an innocuous post about cats, it’s obvious that it comes with a certain set of pitfalls. When you combine polarizing topics with passionate users and add a dash of anonymity, chaos ensues. We’ve seen that this alone can dissuade women from exploring possibilities of public leadership.

Whether you have a desire to serve now or in the future, your digital persona is being built with every click, like, and post. Learn to do so with intentionality, care, and safety.
