SIGBI News Briefing – 7 February 2020

UN Days 2020 MEASURING OUR IMPACT – We had a good response to our survey on social media activity during the 16 Days of Activism, but we want to do even better. We have chosen four of the UN Days around which we will create a toolkit to be used by Clubs, starting with the International Women’s Day Toolkit, which is already available. Do get involved on social media to raise awareness and get our voices heard. Use our suggested messages and add your own photos of your members doing the equal sign.

The four days that have been chosen in 2020 are: International Women’s Day, World Environment Day, SIGBI Day of Action and 16 Days of Activism.

We will create a toolkit for you to use for each of these four days, and after the event we will circulate a survey asking for you to submit your social media stats. Instructions on how to do this will be included.

Do join in. Let us know how many people you reached, and let’s tally up the total reach for SIGBI for each special day.

TOP TIPS TO MAKE YOUR WEBSITE WORK FOR YOU – We said that we would send out a few top tips on managing your website to improve its performance, in the lead up to the launch of the new website. These will be compiled into one Best Practice Manual, which will accompany the Club Editor User Guide. Please see the first few below:
