Communicating Your Message to Culturally Diverse Media Groups

As someone who provides communication services for your organization, you are asked to get your message out to a wide range of audiences. At our April meeting, you will learn how communicate effectively to culturally diverse media groups and get your message heard across the most diverse state in the nation.

According to the Public Policy Institute of California, 27 percent of Californians are foreign born - a higher proportion than in any other state and twice the nationwide share. Our panel of expert PIOs will show you how to adapt your message to the various demographics and appeal to the right target audience.
