NPR NEWS Senior Producer and Social Media Strategist DAVAR ARDALAN has joined the SECOND MUSE organization as Director of Storytelling and Engagement. SECONDMUSE works with clients like NASA, NIKE, INTEL, the WORLD BANK, and USAID as a collaboration enabler to strategize on problem solving.
"We are thrilled that DAVAR is joining SECONDMUSE and hope to increase the reach and impact of our work through her engagement in communities and telling stories of innovative members," said SECONDMUSE Partner CARRIE FREEMAN.
"It's energizing to join SECONDMUSE as a storyteller," said ARDALIAN, most recently Senior Producer of NPR's Identity and Culture Unit, who will build storytelling campaigns focusing on the "blue economy," entrepreneurship involving the oceans. "Giving voice to social innovation is imperative as rising entrepreneurs create disruptive solutions from biodegradable homewares and fashion accessories to green chemistry and inventive ways to treat wastewater. We need to amplify these cutting-edge social impact stories."
