Social change is hard, earnest work and there’s nothing funny about addressing deeply entrenched social issues… or is there? Empowering those with the least means changing minds and shifting power dynamics, and the latest research shows that humor is the most effective means of reaching those whose beliefs differ from our own. In an age of media saturation, humor cuts through the noise and highlights core truths, with the potential to challenge global leaders and change the behavior of millions. Join this session to explore the power of humor to spotlight issues in a serious world.
