[SANTA BARBARA, CA, July 29] — ICTG welcomes Renee Carmichael as Communications Director.
“Nonprofit leaders are always on the lookout for those remarkable individuals who don’t just share passion for mission,” says the Institute’s Executive Director Rev. Dr. Kate Wiebe. “They bring strong skills, self-initiative, and creative ingenuity to seeking solutions to complex challenges. Renee is one of those gifted individuals.”
Renee began part time with ICTG in an interim role to assess communication practices and strategize a growth plan. Her work also included helping with the 1/9 Montecito Debris Flow memorial event Raising Our Light in Montecito. She created a digital program, eliminating waste at the event, assisted the planning group with marketing, and also designed the Raising Our Light logo.
“The work of ICTG, which Renee will oversee as Communication Director, focuses on streamlining internal and external messaging in ways that people coming through chaos can easily understand,” said Wiebe.
Renee brings over a decade of successful communications experience ranging from startups to corporations. Beginning her career in an integrated communications team, and most recently working in visual communications as a designer and art director, Renee felt drawn to using the skills she has gained in these arenas to develop models for community care after crises.
“This is a very skilled and dedicated group. It’s been inspiring to watch ICTG locally, in the Santa Barbara area, and nationally as we’ve seen a truly unprecedented string of disasters unfold,” said Renee. “I’m honored to be a part of this important work.”
Through the generosity of individuals, families, and granting organizations, the Institute for Collective Trauma and Growth (ICTG), a 501(c)(3) organization, provides education, coaching, and therapeutic services for leaders to address long-term care needs after disaster.
