Politics & Communications Webinar

How Communicators Can Adapt to Our Divisive, Polarized Era


On-demand webinars are available for one year after the live webcast.

The president is slamming brands in tweets; #MeToo is exposing harassment in the workplace and tarnishing brands along the way. As the communications climate grows more heated, the pressure to be both proactive and reactive and to weigh in on topics that may have a direct impact on your brand, employees and customers has never been greater. Are you adequately prepared to do so?

Join PR News’ roster of experts on Nov. 7 for this of-the-moment, must-attend discussion on how brands are finding new ways to advance their corporate responsibility and brand activism goals, even as the fires of controversy rage on all sides. You'll learn how brands are handling the balancing act, and the factors you should consider before wading into a heated debate.

Speakers will share real-life case studies of how incorporating political and ethical stances into business practices has met with success in terms of image, profit, hiring, marketing and more. We'll be asking these communications pros what their plan is if the lens of a current political controversy is turned on them; we’ll also bring data into the picture as presenters discuss how doing the right thing doesn’t just feel good, it’s a rising tide that lifts all ships.
