Meet the teams—Communications Team
Projecting the face and the voice of the World Bank Family Network.
The activity of the Communication Teams is concentrated in the four following fields:
From the bi-monthly newsletter @-a-Glance to web articles, all editorial content is developed under the Communications Team’s supervision. Dual career, parenting and cultural adjustment are some of the most popular topics among WBGFN members. The Communications team members make sure to reflect the interest and needs of our global community while preparing high-quality publication materials.
The Social Media Team plans, researches and produces content using creative tools, live streaming and storytelling. Through our Social Media Platforms (Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube) you acquire snapshots of WBGFN’s events, services and community life in the Country Offices and Washington DC. The Telegram and WhatsApp chat groups are great additions which enhance community experience and sense of belonging. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of our seminars and programs are now available online to all WBGFN members around the world.
Our website is a treasure trove of information of the Family Network. Here you will find institutional content related to our history, structure, mission, programs, services, activities, as well as articles and images developed by the Communications Team. We also keep valuable content from the organization archives online
