People Walking
Change Through Connection

Virginia Williams

Social Impact, Communications, and Engagement.  

Welcome to my portfolio!

This site showcases my work in social behavior change (SBC), using behavioral insights and data to guide innovative programs and strategies that drive engagement and shift norms and behaviors in measurable ways.   

“Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot

un-educate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore."

-- César Chávez

"For me, connecting means walking a mile in another's shoes, even for a day. Only then will you be able to understand their values, their wants, and their needs."
