This past year and a half has been nothing short of historic. As we’ve chronicled momentous events in real time through a communications lens this season, our guests have provided invaluable insight into effectively addressing some of the most prominent social issues of today. Change, especially large-scale social change, is never easy. But through our research this past year, we’ve discovered that communications professionals have a significant role to play in creating it. How we work, why we create the content and campaigns that we do and who we stand up for will all play a role in the formation of our new normal.
In this special season finale episode, Fred and ZaZu bring together what they’ve learned from prominent communicators, political researchers and journalists this season in the context of the 2021 Global Communication Report. ZaZu and Fred will review some of the best advice they’ve received from our guests on everything from diversifying the workplace and leading with purpose to navigating the complex social media landscape and communicating effectively in a polarized nation.
This discussion is part of our series on the 2021 Global Communication Report, available now at https://annenberg.usc.edu/research/center-public-relations/global-communication-report.
