Video of Katie Couric's Plenary at AUDACIA is Up

The video of the panel session Katie Couric moderated at AUDACIA is now up! Ms. Couric and four leading experts discuss using communication as an effective intervention or catalyst for social change.

As AUDACIA Executive Director Dr. Donna Blackwell notes, "One of the things that we’re seeing in this space is a lot of video, a lot of online media, a lot of communication that is devoted to girls’ education. So we here ask the question ‘How is it working? Is it really creating change? Is it creating the environment in which opinions are changed, in which girls have more access to a quality education? We ask ourselves the question, how do you use it? When is it useful to us?’”

Watch Katic Couric, Holly Gordon of 10x10, Dr. Abigail E. Disney of Fork Films, Gina Reiss-Wilchins of Girl Up, and Meera Gandhi of The Giving Back Foundation tackle these questions and more in the full plenary session below.
