1:00 PM Eastern – Co-creating a More Equitable World

Chevara Orrin

Organizations have issued statements of solidarity to reinforce company values about treatment of others, zero tolerance of bias, equality, and inclusion. That coupled with growing public scrutiny regarding organizational policies and practices has caused many leaders to re-evaluate their own commitment to racial equality and the impact of racism on the constituents and stakeholders they serve. As institutions seek to understand their role in responding to current incidents and historical, systemic issues, we have the possibility to transform in ways that may have seemed inaccessible in the past. Chevara Orrin, an award-winning equity and inclusion practitioner, believes that the only way through is together.

With the help of Karen Morales, we’ll walk through the three marketing questions you must answer today—where to focus next and how you can turn a downturn into a business growth strategy.

4:00 PM Eastern – Social Networking Hour

One of the highlights of our LP Magazine Annual Meetings is the opportunity to get together after an afternoon of business meetings and presentations to visit with our peers, renew friendships, and meet new ones. Even though we are virtual this year, we’re offering attendees the opportunity to network virtually via Zoom meeting with video and audio so you can say “Hello,” wave to each other, or just check out those COVID beards and new hair styles.

Thanks to Axis Communications for sponsoring the networking opportunity.
