Erin Polgreen

Erin Polgreen is an internationally recognized strategist who works at the intersection of audience engagement, news innovation, and entrepreneurship. She is the cofounder of Symbolia Magazine, organizes the Media Ideation Fellowships, and regularly consults for a variety of foundations and media organizations. Her work has been written about in Forbes, FastCo, and the Columbia Journalism Review.

In May 2012, Polgreen co-authored Engaging Audiences: Measuring Interactions, Engagement and Conversions with Jan Schaffer of J-Lab. The report focused on how digital-first news organizations are measuring--and struggling to measure--audience participation and the overall impact of their work.

Prior to founding Symbolia, Polgreen was interim director of The Media Consortium, where she oversaw strategic program development, editorial collaborations, and educational curriculum that supported a network of more than 50 leading independent media outlets.

Polgreen recently moved from Chicago, IL to Oakland, CA. She loves motorcycle touring. Follow her on Twitter: @ErinPolgreen.
