AFC Live Presents: Using Your Platform to Evoke Change

Your voice is your biggest platform, not just your job title. On Sept. 19, 2019, we gathered podcasters, brands, advertisers and activists alike to tell us how they made change happen in their own way – and how you can do the same. What resulted was an in-depth discussion on giving rise to change, at work, within our social circles and in the world at large.
