PR Council Members are invited to a networking luncheon at Marcel’s by Robert Wiedmaier prior to the #PRovoke Global PR Summit in Washington D.C.

We’re excited to host New York Times Best-Selling author Ibram X. Kendi at the luncheon for a discussion on ways to incorporate some of the constructive thoughts and suggestions gleaned from his book into our respective organizations.

Ibram X. Kendi, author of the New York Times Best-Selling book, “How to be an Antiracist,” will speak at the luncheon.  Kendi’s talk is the first of the PR Council’s executive book club, sponsored by Gail Heimann of Weber Shandwick, Peter Finn of Finn Partners and Brad MacAfee of Porter Novelli. This is an exciting initiative that should provoke interesting conversations about diversifying our industry and demonstrate our commitment to doing that.
