Diversity can be our greatest strength if we embrace difference and foster inclusion within our community. As professional communicators, we have the power to inspire unity by amplifying voices across all types of experiences and backgrounds. In today’s world, our work has never been more important or more challenging.
Through breakout sessions, presentations, and discussion, this conference will explore ways to authentically elevate perspectives that are often overlooked and create a space to discover our connections to one another as professionals and as people. The day will also include opportunities for professional development, networking, and learning focused on shared responsibility and sustainable transformation.
The University of Minnesota Communicators Forum aims to promote excellence in communications and to enhance cooperation among communications professionals working at the University, and we hope you will join us June 6 for our annual conference.
