Government Communication in an Age of Disinformation

 Registration is closed for this event

How do you build trust in the digital world where technology is fast and often impulsive?  How do you combat “fake news” and build trust and confidence with the American public? What are the ethical dilemmas faced by government communicators and how can they best be resolved?

This panel of experienced government communicators from the Department of Defense and the federal government aim to answer these questions and begin the conversations our profession needs to have amidst an information environment that proves increasingly difficult for the public to navigate as trusted sources of information, or confidence in those sources, wanes.

The panel, hosted by PRSA’s Public Affairs and Government Committee in partnership with National Association of Government Communicators, will provide insights, principles of ethical government communication and key strategies for all communicators and specifically for those in government communications.

The panelists are Chris O’Neil, President of the National Association of Government Communicators; Glenn Holloway, public affairs officer at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and Anne Rancourt, Communication Section Chief at the National Institutes of Health. The panel will be moderated by Megan Kindelan, Director of Public Affairs at the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Department of Labor.
