The Good, The Bad & The Ugly: Social Media Lessons from an Outspoken Activist

9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Hosted by Jasculca Terman Strategic Communications

Main Stage 2 - The Merchandise Mart 222 W Merchandise Mart Plaza Chicago Illinois 60654




Social media allows you to connect with people you want to reach, and is a great way to start conversations that can lead to increased brand recognition, sales, awareness and more. Sometimes, though, even the most well-intentioned message creates a firestorm, threatening your reputation. Do you apologize, and hope people move on to another topic? Or, do you stand strong and reinforce your message?

Activist Suey Park, writer and originator of #NotYourAsianSideKick, #CancelColbert and other hashtags, will discuss the power and positive potential of social media for shaping public perception, and will take a look at the negative implications of a social media conversation gone awry, providing tips on how to best withstand an onslaught of trolls and internet bullies.

Time of this event is subject to change.
