In this episode of The #DigitalDiplomacy Podcast, we talk to Nancy Groves who at the time of recording was Head of the Social Media Section at the UN Department for Global Communications in New York.
Groves tells us about how a multilateral organization like the United Nations works with social media, how she and her team choose the topics the publish, the limitations and challenges they face in their daily work of communicating the UN and its priorities all around the globe, and how they plan and execute their big week each year in September when the UN General Assembly is in session.
Since this episode was recorded – it took a little while to edit it this time… – Nancy has changed both jobs and continents and is now the Digital Strategy Chief for the UN Environment Programme in Nairobi, Kenya.
