Diversity, equity and inclusion are today considered a business imperative. But, how can we, as professional communicators, help advance that mandate while living and working in an increasingly polarized society? IABC and PRSA are teaming up to host a powerful morning session designed to unpack this complex and multifaceted topic. Led by KSTP-TV 5 Eyewitness News Anchor/Reporter Brandi Powell, experts and participants will delve into what is sure to be a dynamic discussion.

Whether in the C-Suite, in management or a solo practitioner, participants will be challenged by, and hear lessons from, our stellar experts. Bring your voice to this town hall-style discussion and gain insights about how to be an ally in the workplace, guide clients in this discussion and the importance of having diverse viewpoints at the table. Following the town hall-style discussion, participants will then gather for small-group discussions.

An American Sign Language interpreter will be available by request. Please contact for more information.
