School of Communications Dean Rochelle Ford made a guest appearance on the “Women in PR” podcast on June 11 to discuss a myriad of topics relating to the public relations industry, concentrating on its need to embrace and champion diversity, equity and inclusion.
Ford and host Ana Adi, a professor of public relations and corporate communications at Quadriga University of Applied Sciences in Berlin, Germany, spoke for nearly an hour, providing an honest conversation about the PR industry’s lack of diversity and the problems that arise because of this issue, especially during a time featuring political and social movements.

It is hosted by Quadriga University of Applied Sciences and has published 15 podcasts since its launch last year.
