How Stories Can Influence Change: Making an Impact by Sharing Your Personal Journey with Self-Direction

The future has never been brighter for self-direction as more and more stakeholders have begun to recognize the value of this model in the wake of the pandemic. It is a pivotal moment for more people to share their personal experiences with self-direction - whether you are a participant, family member, FMS provider, or a supporter of the model. But, how can you ensure your voice is heard? This panel seeks to answer that question. Andy Burness, President at Burness, facilitated this discussion panel and presented his theory of change for public interest communications. He was joined by panelists with varying experiences as a parent, community provider, and Financial Management Services (FMS) provider. Each panelist shared their own experiences putting this theory of change into action.
