Big Ideas: My First Book Feature

I sort of think that every word out of my mouth is pretty deep and important. But once in a while, I’ll say something that’s actually quoted and published, like the stuff I said in here: a book on nonprofit brand management.

Congratulations to Nathalie Laidler-Kylander (Harvard Kennedy School) and Julia Shepard Stenzel (nonprofit consultant) on their new framework and book on how to manage nonprofit brands with integrity, democracy and affinity! I’m thrilled to be included in their endeavor.

The Brand IDEA

Offering a new framework for nonprofit brand management, Nathalie Laidler-Kylander and Julia Shepard Stenzel present the Brand IDEA (Integrity, Democracy, and Affinity). The framework eschews traditional, outdated brand tenets of control and competition largely adopted from the private sector, in favor of a strategic approach centered on the mission and based on a participatory process, shared values, and the development of key partnerships. The results are nonprofit brands that create organizational cohesion and generate trust in order to build capacity and drive social impact. The book explores in detail how nonprofit organizations worldwide are developing and implementing new ways of thinking about and managing their organizational brands.

Angelina and Brad in matching tuxedos at the BAFTAs. Love, love, love!
If a decade worth of humanitarian work, a repertoire of award-winning films, and mothering six children was not enough, Angelina Jolie has now taken it upon herself to blur obvious gender lines on the red carpet. 
Angelia is wearing a Saint Laurent suit with an undone bow tie, patent-leather pumps, and minimal jewelry. And, Brad is looking dapper with a fresh high-and-tight cut and Valentino tux. Their kids are not pictured, but we can assume wherever they are, whatever they are doing, they are probably looking impossibly fly, too.

Art is truth. Cheers to Lindsay Bottos for exposing the hateful, anonymous messages she received in response to her selfies. This girl is a warrior.

lindsaybottos:

some new stuff I’m working on, I get tons of anonymous messages like this every day and while this isn’t unique to women, the content of the messages and the frequency in which I get them are definitely related to my gender. I almost exclusively get them after I post selfies. The authority people feel they have to share their opinion on my appearance is something myself and many other girls online deal with daily.
