From speechwriting to media relations and reputation management to messaging, Steven Fisher brings a unique creativity to Raben that gets attention and results.
As a principal in the firm's Strategic Communications practice, Steven has led multi-year projects for Google, The Ad Council, Everytown for Gun Safety, Etsy, Columbia University, and more. His TED-style speeches and writing for Fortune 500 executives, foundation and advocacy leaders, and top-tier actors get the attention of key audiences and earn stories in top media outlets.
He conceived and executive produced a landmark anti-gun violence video for Everytown for Gun Safety, featuring more than 50 actors and artists following the Newtown tragedy, securing millions of views and coverage in major news outlets. He also helped the organization and actor Julianne Moore launch the Everytown Creative Council, for which he continues to provide strategic counsel.
Responding to a groundbreaking advocacy campaign that Steven conceived for Rights4Girls, the Associated Press made a watershed change to its quintessential Stylebook, directing reporters and editors to avoid using the phrase “child prostitute,” an oxymoronic term that wrongly characterizes underage girls who are sex trafficked in the United States.
Steven’s writings on behalf of clients have been placed on the opinion pages of The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and elsewhere. Twice, his words appeared in Time Magazine’s “Quotes of the Week.”
Steven is an expert media trainer and has prepped spokespeople for appearances on most major networks and cable news shows. He has also prepared executives and officials for investigative stories by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CBS News, 20/20, and 60 Minutes.
Steven is a graduate of The George Washington University. He was raised in Short Hills, New Jersey.
