People's Insights Volume 1, Issue 45: It Gets Better

4,271

Published on

This week, we distill insights around It Gets Better - a grassroots change movement that solicits personal stories and messages from LGBT adults and allies to let LGBT teens know that life gets better.

100+ thinkers and planners within MSLGROUP share and discuss inspiring projects on corporate citizenship, crowdsourcing, storytelling and social data on the MSLGROUP Insights Network.

Every week, we pick up one project and do a deep dive into conversations around it -- on the MSLGROUP Insights Network itself but also on the broader social web -- to distill insights and foresights. We share these insights and foresights with you on our People’s Insights blog and compile the best insights from the network and the blog in the iPad-friendly People’s Lab Quarterly Magazine, as a showcase of our capabilities.
