About the Event

Crisis communication is an eventuality for every public relations and marketing professional, but 2020 brought about a confluence of national crises that posed unique challenges for communication strategists across industries.

In light of what is continually described as an unprecedented year, the Alumni Association’s PR and Marketing Network has organized an alumni panel of experts in the field of crisis communication who will speak about challenges and best practices in the field, and how COVID-19, racial tensions, and other current events have affected their work.

Those who attend this virtual roundtable will have the opportunity to ask questions of this accomplished group of communication professionals at the conclusion of a conversation moderated by Jeff Hahn (M.A. 2015), owner and principal of Hahn Public.
