Attendees will also:

·Learn about the shift needed to evolve an employee base that was hesitant to speak on behalf of the organization.

·Discover how to build and instill trust in employees to use their voice from sharing on social media channels to engaging in the local community, to speaking to influencers and public audiences.

“Our employee communications strategy contributes to the foundation's key priorities as well as critical employee engagement factors by offering opportunities for authentic leadership, peer learning and collaboration, and open dialogue,” Hipchen said. “I work to help employees feel informed about the work of the foundation, connected to the missions and vision, and empowered to share their stories inside and out.”
