CIMRH LCC EVENT March 2022
MARCH 7th 2022 5-6pm
COVID 19 AND THE RESHAPING OF PROFESSIONAL PRACTICES IN THE COMMUNICATIONS INDUSTRIES
Creative Industries Management Research Hub invites you all on the 7th of March 2022, from 5pm, to an exciting research webinar that aims to explore the impact of pandemic on communication professional practices, with a focus on Public Relations.
The CIMRH workshop promotes a better understanding of how COVID-19 pandemic has affected and impacted the Public Relations industry. Many surveys and reports have brought more knowledge at the level of the industry, highlighting the increasing strategic role of PR during pandemic. However, this strong performance and influence of the PR industry has reinforced and exacerbated structural inequalities. Also, mental health has been identified as the biggest challenge facing the profession.
Through three research projects, the workshop speakers will bring different perspectives and nuanced conversations around this topic:
- Stephen will present ‘The COVID-19 Communications Advisory Panel report’ he authored, providing interested audiences with an across-the-industry outlook.
- Alenka provides our audiences with a more individual-focused lens of how pandemic has been lived by women PR practitioners.
- Raluca and Anca will present their ethnographic findings on how communication freelance professionals have been impacted by COVID-19.
