How to impact the EU bubble was the topic of a ‘digital lunch discussion’ held by the European Campaign Playbook (ECP) in December 2020. Ana Mingo and Anna-Kaisa Itkonen were guests.
In advocacy, the real and enduring change happens when the cause comes first. What does that mean? It means you commit to a principle, aim, or movement and put it before the desire to gain personal credit.
Doing the opposite will get you some tactical wins and short-lived gains, there is no doubt about it. But, if you are in the advocacy space for the long run, then you better avoid making these types of mistakes.
And this is why it felt so reassuring to hear from professionals like Ana Mingo and Anna-Kaisa Itkonen. They shared with us how they promote the cause of gender equality through their work.
