Our story begins in 2007. We met while both pursuing a Master's Degree in Public Diplomacy from the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communications and Journalism in partnership with the USC Dornsife School of International Relations. Recognizing our shared values and common vision, we formed a quick friendship and collaborative working relationship, both in the classroom and beyond. Since then, we have been working together planning, designing and implementing high-impact strategic communications campaigns on some of our world's most critical social and political issues.
A passion project in its own right, INsight→INcite Campaigns was born out of our personal commitment to shaping a more just world through impactive communications. We fancy ourselves pro-activists and work exclusively on issues that inspire us—ensuring that our partners get the very best of both our brains and our hearts.
STEFANIE GARDEN Managing Partner
I investigate the shifting dynamic between people and the institutions that govern them, and transform those lessons into expressive and impactful communications that captivate audiences and incite meaningful action.
With over a decade of combined communications, journalism and research experience–along with a knack for creative writing–my approach emphasizes strategic issue framing and compelling narrative development.
Guided by a fierce passion for social justice and anchored by a strong penchant for strategic problem solving, I believe that tackling our world’s most complex social issues requires a purposeful blend of idealistic vision and pragmatic approach.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in International Security and Conflict Resolution from San Diego State University, along with a Master of Public Diplomacy from the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, in partnership with the USC Dornsife School of International Relations.

Over the last decade, I have honed my skills in media content analysis, public opinion research, message development, persuasion tactics, stakeholder outreach and campaign strategy. I have partnered with leading foundations to build powerful social change campaigns on a range of issues, including social justice, education equality, environmental protection and economic empowerment.
