The network for social impact communications practitioners


Let's do something different

Channels is a free and voluntary grassroots community initiative. You may have some connections on LinkedIn, you may have some friends who do similar work to you, and you may even be interacting with other #Comms people from behind the name of your organisation or brand online. But, there is often too little meaningful interaction between those of us who work in various communications positions across these various sectors. Channels was started to fill this gap in communication between communications practitioners in social impact fields and add an element of creativity, energy, fun into the community. 

What do we do?

Provide a platform for knowledge sharing among like-minded people

Create content and invite blogs written by our community on #SocialImpactComms

Host professional and personal development events for members
