    Join PRSA Hampton Roads and AMA Hampton Roads on Wednesday, September 19, 2018, for a joint luncheon with guest speaker Andrew McCaskill, APR, senior VP of global communications & multicultural marketing for Nielsen in New York and board member for PRSA National. Registration will close on September 12th. Receive a $5 early-bird discount by using promo code EARLYBIRD by September 5th.

    We will explore data and research pointing to key demographic shifts in the United States – communities of color, millennials, gender/race and sexual orientation. Communicators today must not only be developing communications strategies for inclusive audiences – but rather entire multicultural audiences, with messaging through a new lens. If brands and companies lack a multicultural strategy, then there’s no growth. Our marketplace today is becoming more and more about multicultural consumers, who are driving decisions and carry more buying power.

    Three key takeaways

    • To better understand your demographic data and research

    • The multicultural shift is ongoing and ever-changing

    • How to implement inclusive communication strategies
