Diversity & Inclusion in PR - Feb. 15

Rochelle Ford, a recognized expert in diversity and inclusion in public relations and advertising, will share her career and life experiences. Like many others in the PR industry, Ford gives credit to Ofield Dukes for much of her success and is a co-editor of Dukes’ autobiography. One of the nation’s most successful African-American public relations practitioners and one of the most influential people of the civil rights period, Dukes advised Martin Luther King Jr., Coretta Scott King, and author Alex Haley, as well as dozens of Motown stars, including Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross.

Our first luncheon of the year will be held at Hotel Roanoke.
