Promote your CDGs with a fun and easy public event
These very practical guidelines are from a PD Jam with Jane Bennett in May 2022. Download guidelines here
Please use our new CDG Branding and Style Guide for your CDG materials. As this is similar to our previous branding you are welcome to use up your marketing materials before redesigning with these new elements. Big thank you to Mariana Zavery for your skill and dedication – we’re glad you got so passionate about this! And the CDG Marketing Team too for your thoughtful input and enthusiasm.

Sample of what your flyers could look like. Or you can use this one and make the text changes you wish with Acrobat DC or Acrobat Pro.
And here is a flyer that you can change all parts of. It’s in Word and once you’ve made your changes save it as a pdf.
Thanks Mariana and Janoel.
Here is a sample of a non-gendered CDG flyer for you to take inspiration from if you you need to create one for a specific group, or would like to promote the workshop non-gendered generally. In such cases you are welcome to call it a ‘Celebration Day’ but do please use the logo and other signifiers. Thank you Alice Tabak.
Everyone keeps bookmarks! You can adapt this with your name and contacts along the cream banner on the front. Just move the web address up – better than a business card! Ditto re Acrobat DC or Acrobat Pro.
If a kind soul wishes to gift a place at your CDG to a mother and daughter they can give the lucky recipients this card (after paying you of course!).
These two letterhead options may look pale and stretchy but type your letter, save it as a pdf and Hey Presto! A gorgeous professional letter. Especially useful if you are introducing yourself to schools or community organisations where you’d like to offer CDG. See ‘Letters for Schools and Parents’ in More Resources for sample letters you’re welcome to use as templates.
This is a sample signature you could adapt with your name …
And here is an un-named one …
Here is a great short article about Celebration Day for Girls by Jo MacDonald to inspire you. You can use it as a template to create your own for local newspapers (who are always after articles they don’t have to produce themselves), community sites etc. Thanks Jo CDG article Jo MacDonald
