Opening IABC World Conference keynote Soledad O’Brien to speak on the state of the media
When IABC signed with other organizations to support the freedom of the press, we showed our deep commitment for this global value. With award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien as our opening keynote speaker, we’ll carry that commitment forward at the 2019 IABC World Conference.
Fitting with this year’s theme, “Think Forward,” we’ll look at major changes affecting the communication landscape, including the freedom of the press and its relation to the global business community. We’ll consider how changes to technology and the media are affecting our ability to stay true to the ideals of ethics, truth and transparency.
Soledad O’Brien will draw from her experiences to discuss the challenges and transformations to the global media. Even as the media is under assault (e.g., disappearance of journalists, government distrust), the world is relying on it more than ever for the voices, facts and revelations it brings forward.
