My name is Mary Joyce and am an activism consultant. I use my skills as a researcher, strategist, and communicator to help organizations promote human rights and social justice around the world.
I have ten years’ international experience in activism innovation, focusing on the use of digital media. I am author of the edited volume Digital Activism Decoded: The New Mechanics of Change (2010) and gained practical campaign experience as New Media Operations Manager for President Obama’s national 2008 campaign.
I have worked as a trainer and activism advisor in countries such as Turkey, Switzerland, Norway, and Lebanon. My clients have include the YMCA, Open Society Foundations, Eurasian Harm Reduction Network, and Massachusetts Department of Higher Education. (You can read their endorsements here.) I specialize in trainings on the strategic use of digital media in activism.
I am also a skilled qualitative research. I co-founded the Digital Activism Research Project at the University of Washington in 2012, where I designed and then led a team that created the Global Digital Activism Data Set. That ambitious project used citizen media reports to catalog and analyze 426 digital activism campaign from 100 countries. My research has been supported by the United States Institute of Peace and the National Science Foundation.
I have an MA in Communication from the University of Washington (2014). My academic credentials also include a certificate in the Advanced Study of Nonviolent Conflict from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy‘s Summer Institute (2010) and graduate study in Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government (2007-8). My BA in History and Africana Studies is from Vassar College (2004).
