Shining a light into the black box of social marketing planning, management and evaluation

Workshop leader : Prof. Jeff French, iSMA

Developing and Implementing Equitable Social Marketing Programs: Strategies for Research, Audience Segmentation, and Program Development

Half Day Workshop - 12.30  - 5.00 
Workshop leaders : Jeff Jordan, Resuce, USA

Social Marketing and other behavior change programs often struggle to reach and impact those who are in greatest need of change. This is largely because the same forces that cause populations to be at greater risk often make those same populations harder to reach and influence. Equity in Social Marketing looks like a reduction in inequities (i.e., health equity, environmental equity, social justice, etc.) by the end of the program. To achieve this, program planners and researchers must understand the forces behind these inequities and intentionally develop strategies to combat these inequities through every phase of their program. This workshop will review some of the common inequities that exist among our audiences and how the research, strategy development, program design, and implementation can all be approached with intentional equity to achieve more equitable outcomes.

Using Lived Experiences to Achieve Equitable Behavior Change
Jeff Jordan, President and Founder, Rescue, USA

Interventions to change behavior often focus on a two-dimensional problem, such as a specific health concern or environmental issue. But making progress on those issues requires looking beyond the topic of concern to understand the people and behaviors that contribute to these behaviors. More importantly, you must understand why those behaviors are performed in the first place and what could change them. Diving deep into the lived experiences of our audiences not only improves our understanding of the behavior and opportunities to change it but makes equitable outcomes possible by helping us understand why inequities exist. This keynote will explore how Rescue Agency achieves equitable behavior change through a deep understanding of its audiences’ lived experiences and how they influence their behavioral decisions.
