Iowa State University’s Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication is hosting its second annual industry summit from Thursday evening, September 5, 2019 through Friday, September 6, 2019 at the Scheman Building at the Iowa State Center. The theme is “Communications and Civility in Our Democracy.”
Journalism, advertising and PR professionals are the country’s greatest stewards of mass communication and social media interactions. This year’s Greenlee Summit has a unique focus on the relationship between communications, politics and civility. Various speakers, panels and moderated discussions will identify how we can foster civil discourse, and help people understand we are a more informed and productive society when we are committed to civility – as individuals and professionals.
Leslie Gaines-Ross, Weber Shandwick’s Chief Reputation Strategist, will present the Friday keynote “Civility in America,” which includes findings from a nationwide survey that gauges Americans’ attitudes toward civility in a variety of areas impacting American society and daily life. More sessions will be announced soon.
Join more than 250 community leaders and professionals from across the country plus Iowa State University educators and students. The Greenlee Summit is a unique opportunity for professional leaders, educators and students to learn from and have productive dialogue with experts from various industry segments and respected national organizations.
Registration for Friday’s events is $125/person and is required for community leaders, professionals and educators. (Registration includes morning refreshments, lunch and networking reception.)
Registration is not required for ISU students, who are invited to attend speakers and sessions complimentary throughout the day.
