Event description

Description

Recognizing bias that leads to mis- and under-representation of People of Color internally and externally is the first step to producing media that is culturally aware and relevant to diverse audiences. With the use of case studies, learn how media bias ultimately influences world views — distorted or not — in your communication, marketing and PR approaches, and what you can do to change it.
