  5. One of the ways that foundations help advance social issues is to commission research. However, to fully take advantage of the opportunity that high-quality research has to offer -- both to advance issues and demonstrate the foundation as a leader in topic areas -- there are more effective ways to get attention than simply posting a report on a website or sending out press releases. In this conversation, Gabriela Fitz, Co-Director of IssueLab, and Communications Network Contributor Susan Herr, explore how to use new tools that can help foundations use social policy research to achieve actual societal impact.

    Before co-founding IssueLab, Gabriela spent ten years working as an online strategist and web designer for nonprofit organizations. She received her M.A. in Sociology from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2006, with an emphasis in Organizational Sociology and her B.A. in Sociology from the University of California at Berkeley in 1994.
