Last month I asked an organization what hashtag they were using for an event. Even though the exchange took place via email, I could almost hear the crickets chirping while I awaited a reply.
Vision 2020, a decade-long national project focused on advancing gender equality, begins this week. Someone in the organization knows their stuff; this list of hashtags came out via twitter last week:
Why so many hashtags? Two are general (V2020 and Vision2020), while the others relate to specific topics of discussion during the project, as noted on the facebook page:
#V2020AC (Arts & Culture)
#V2020BLF (Business, Law & Finance)
#V2020CM (Communications & Media)
#V2020PG (Politics & Government)
#V2020PFV (Philanthropy, Faith & Volunteerism)
#V2020STE (Science, Technology & Engineering)
I am privileged to be a delegate to this event, and I can't wait to meet all of the amazing American women. I will be tweeting as well, using at least one of the general hashtags with each post.
If nothing else, Vision 2020 appears to be a fine example of the use of social media.
