Manage episode 282789289 series 2756647
As we inaugurate a new president amidst a pandemic and civil unrest, new data from the 2021 Global Communication Survey gives us valuable insight into what this next year may hold. In this episode, our guest Dr. Ulrike Gretzel, senior research fellow at the USC Center for Public Relations, discusses the preliminary findings with Fred, exploring the expected impacts of the Biden administration on activism, polarization, diversity and inclusion and more.
As they dive into predictions including increased political polarization, an increase in activist expectations of business involvement in social causes and a largely divided opinion on whether we will experience new unity or increased civil unrest, Dr. Gretzel imparts how we can communicate effectively in these divided states of America, and how it will take the efforts of government, business and media together to unify our country again.
