Pikes Peak PRSA is packed with activities and opportunities for professional development in the fall, and it all starts on September 11 with our upcoming luncheon on accessible communications. Don’t forget to save the date for our annual workshop on October 16 – the program is being designed to give you the tools you need to be ready for the next PR crisis that comes your way.
September Luncheon – Accessible Communication for All
Are your communications reaching the entire community, or do individuals with disabilities face barriers in accessing your content?
Join us for a conversation with Sadie Martinez, the Access and Functional Needs Coordinator for the Colorado Division of Homeland Security Emergency Management, as she covers strategies and tips to promote inclusive, accessible communication.
RSVP today, and we’ll see you at 11:30 a.m. at The Warehouse on Wednesday, September 11!
