    Storytelling Through Video: How YOU can use video as a tool to generate interest in your nonprofit

    A picture says a thousand words, and a video is made of a thousand pictures! Video is currently the most authentic and practical way to share stories, directly from the mouths of your clients, volunteers, and staff members. But how do you even get started? After all, video can be expensive! We're talking 10s of thousands of dollars expensive for your average 30s commercial! Join WID-NJ and Kyle Foor from Weston: Video and Media to learn how you can get started today with a $0 budget!


    Kyle Foor is a veteran storyteller of 10 years. Initially a freelancer for large agencies and corporations, Kyle switched to the non-profit realm to focus on stories that lead to impactful change. His conversational approach to interviewing clients has allowed him to create hundreds of impactful stories, and learn more about his clients in the process. His new mission is teaching storytelling to non-profit leaders, because he knows that anyone can learn to tell a story!

    May Roundtable: Working on Wellness with NAMI Mercer

    Women in Development New Jersey (WID-NJ) welcomes NAMI Mercer volunteers Karen Marquis, PhD and Carol Kivler, MS, CSP to lead a roundtable all about wellness at work!

    Since the worldwide pandemic, the demand for mental health support in our communities continues to grow. In response to this need, NAMI Mercer has been developing a program called Working on Wellness in which participants converse on a variety of topics related to mental wellness in the workplace.

    During this interactive session, the conversation will focus on various struggles many of us face as nonprofit professionals. Participants will exchange ideas as well as expressions of support. Come prepared to share, listen, and uplift members of the WID-NJ community!

    At this roundtable, you will gain an impression of what an employee resource support group can achieve in reducing the stigma associated with conversations on mental wellness. Furthermore, you're invited to shape the conversation! When you register, you will identify or suggest a topic of interest.

    Please note: unlike our other virtual events, this roundtable will not be recorded and shared with members. We want to provide a safe space where participants can fully engage in the conversation. WID-NJ members can access past roundtables through the membership portal.

    Don’t miss this opportunity to interact with the WID-NJ community and take steps to improve your workplace wellness!


    Dr. Marquis is retired from Pfizer as Director of Schizophrenia and Bipolar Discovery Group, is currently a member of the NAMI Mercer Board, and has volunteered for eight years on NAMI Mercer's Helpline.  

    Ms. Kivler is the owner of Kivler Communications and is a speaker, international executive coach, motivator, training consultant, and author.
