The Digital Campaign Accelerator is a virtual, cohort-based workshop taking place over six weeks. Each week, we’ll gather for a live, virtual session dedicated to a key digital campaign topic (see Overview). In between each live session, you’ll work on a hands-on self-directed project designed to practice your skills.
Each cohort is limited to no more than 12 participants to facilitate a small, familiar group that’s comfortable asking questions and working together as desired. Live sessions are 90 minutes long. Expect to spend at least 1-2 hours each week working independently on projects – more if you choose.
March 2 – April 6
Tuesdays: 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm ET
