The Media for Social Impact Summit brought together representatives from the United Nations, along with leading media, advertising, and creative organizations, to showcase the power of media to drive social change and strategize campaigns around pressing global issues. During the summit, Ms. Skilling also served on the event's leadership council and facilitated a discussion on the best practices for powerful communications.
