#FlipTheSwitch Topics

Change to the Power of Many

Our film represents a collaborative approach to systemic change. This is a critical shift in the trends to combat significant global problems and presents a new model focused on collaboration for leveraged impact. This session is designed to inspire new collaborative partnerships taking on significant change in fulfilment of UN SDG Goal 17: Partnerships.  

 

Disrupting the Patriarchy: Women at the Center

The untapped potential of women represents a significant “disruption” that will increase impact to global GDP and progress toward the UN SDG. The film’s focus on empowering women and girls across sectors and regions shows a significant new way to combat central issues like ultra poverty, gender inequality and climate change.

 

All of the Above: Empowerment through Story

Facts don't change hearts and mind. People do. Stories connect and inspire, so the partnership behind #FlipTheSwitch created a wraparound approach to storytelling that elevated the work of empowering women and girls, including creating a forum for them to speak for themselves. This "all of the above" communications plan creates a wider partnership with long-term involvement.
