*** Marquette University/Arthur W. Page Corporate Communication Commons event

Friday, April 20, 2012

Diederich College of Communication, Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The inaugural Marquette University/Arthur W. Page Corporate Communication Commons event will focus on the relationship between corporations and society. What expectations do key stakeholders have for corporations as purveyors of social value and how do we communicate in ways that allow these stakeholders to understand and believe the ways corporates can and do meet these expectations.

The Corporate Communication Commons will provide an opportunity for corporate communication professionals to come together to consider how corporations embody social human values in ways that resonate with key stakeholders. The conference will consider issues that exist at the intersection of corporate identity, shared values and stakeholder trust.

To register for the Corporate Communication Commons Conference, please visit our registration page on the Marquette University website or email Meghan O’Leary at meghan.oleary@marquette.edu.
