Free Webcast, June 29 @ 6 pm ET
Presented by The Museum of Public Relations
On June 29, please join the Museum’s third annual tribute to our industry’s LGBTQ community. Two panels — one of PR professionals from both corporate and non-profit organizations, followed by a diverse panel of journalists covering LGBTQ+ issues, will engage in discussions ranging from the current challenges facing the community and how it is covered in media to how the social activism of the last 50+ years has helped bring it to where it is today.
From state-level attacks on trans youth to the fight for the Equality Act to the growing diversity and influence of employee resource groups (ERGs) and the increasing support and interest of businesses to reach the LGBTQ+ consumer, communication and media experts will cover a lot of ground and take your questions! A recording of the program will be available following the show.
