Diversity and Inclusion: What are Communicators Doing Wrong?

Date and Time
Wednesday, August 19, 2020
12:00 AM to 1:00 PM EST

This is an online event.

The world has changed dramatically in the months since George Floyd's death. Now that public opinion supports what Black Lives Matter and other organizations have been advocating, how must businesses adapt and evolve? What are some of the common missteps and correction actions that business communicators make?   
IABC Jacksonville will host a virtual meeting noon to 1 p.m. on Aug. 19 to speak with three first-hand experts on the internal and external issues that our organizations face:

  • James Blackeagle has worked in the environmental services industry in commercial operations since 2013 for Advanced Disposal Services as a roll-off driver.
  • Rahman Johnson is an actor, producer, communications consultant, and news anchor
  • Nikesha Elise Williams is a two-time Emmy award-winning news producer and award-winning author
