The Influence Nation Summit explores the drivers behind social movements today – messaging/pop culture/tech – and how these movements lead people from understanding to action. The summit brings together senior executives in marketing and communications at companies overseeing social issue engagement, senior cause executives leading movements and campaigns, and the media entrenched in today’s social issues.



The summit is carefully curated to review, regardless of issue area, what moves the public to act on causes they care about. Supported and co-hosted by Cause and Social Influence and the Ad Council, the summit features conversations and reviews of the latest research and impact of today’s influences on social issue campaigns, moments and movements. The summit brings together:

  • 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

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.
