Hot Off The Presses!

National speaker, Shannon Bowen, Ph.D., joins us for this APR-month special professional development opportunity!

Learn what the latest research in Public Relations tells us and how we can apply these new insights to internal practices, ensuring ethical approaches to manage any crisis. 

Dr. Bowen will discuss a new theoretical framework – based on autonomous moral reasoning – for managing crisis in an ethical way. Her research was recently published in “Crisis Communication,” a 2020 book by Finn Frandsen and Winni Johansen, Danish world-class researchers in organizational crisis, crisis management and crisis communication. She will also share findings of her newest research!
