You can influence a movement. 

October 24, 2019  |  New York City 

Location Will Be Announced Soon




The Influence Nation Summit explores how companies and causes persuade action, challenge thinking and build public support for today’s social movements. 

At the summit, we discuss the drivers behind social movements today – messaging, pop culture, networks, technology – and examine effective approaches to lead people from understanding to action.



The Influence Nation Summit is carefully curated to demonstrate, regardless of issue area, what tactics move the public to act on causes they care about. The summit brings together:

  • Subject matter experts (researchers, program designers and social entrepreneurs),

  • Marketing and communication professionals (individuals generating public attention and engagement) and

  • Community members engaging individuals on the ground (activists, organizers and influencers).

This programming feature allows the audience to hear from people with authentic expertise on issues and getting the public to move along the spectrum of cause engagement. Regardless of issue interest, anyone can learn from the approach and tactics to move the public to act.


Who Should Attend?

  • Senior executives in marketing and communications at companies overseeing social issue engagement

  • Senior cause executives leading movements and designing public engagement strategies

  • Media outlets and journalists, thought leaders and academics studying and covering movements in America
