This session will include a crash course in crisis communications from national expert Scott Summerfield followed by an all-female, all-Black panel who have lived the challenges of crisis communications through the lens of race and equity.
We are living in a world of non-stop crisis from facing a global pandemic to addressing the severe impacts of climate change on our local communities. Managing these emergencies has required local government agencies to plan ahead and execute a structured response to ensure affected communities can stay safe and receive critically needed support. However, the long-awaited racial justice reckoning across America has brought forth a new sort of crisis for local government. Tune into this session to learn about the tools you and your agency need to engage your community on race and equity in public safety and beyond.
