UHeights is hosting a Zoom meeting in order to continue our Thursdays at 10 meetings via video chat! Discussion Group will be meeting on the second Thursday of the month. Join us!
About our Speaker:
For our December Discussion Group, we will welcome guest speaker, Catherine Hinrichsen (HYNE-rick-sen). Catherine is a veteran communications professional and educator. Most recently, she led Seattle University's Project on Family Homelessness for 10 years. This was a communications and advocacy program funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. They used innovative strategies in journalism, arts, and storytelling to engage the community in solving family homelessness. Some of their work included the award-winning Journalism Fellowships on Family Homelessness, and storytelling collaborations with the acclaimed nonprofits StoryCorps and The Moth.
The project also served as a pro bono communications firm, building capacity and collaboration among nonprofit partners to stimulate action and policy change. Catherine recruited and supervised the team of Seattle U students each year who created content for partners, and planned and implemented community engagement events. With partners, Catherine has presented a popular workshop on Data Storytelling at national and regional conferences since 2016.
Catherine's community service includes leading the communications efforts as a board member of the Third Door Coalition, a cross-sector civic alliance working to solve chronic homelessness in King County, Washington. Next week she will start a new position doing communications at the Washington State Department of Health, and will teach a class on Public Relations and Society at UW in the winter quarter.
