Throughout 2020, social media managers across all industries and sectors have faced unprecedented challenges in navigating their brands on social media during a pandemic, along with addressing community unrest and racial tensions. Employers have faced critical challenges in managing the transition to a remote workforce and keeping their teams fully operational and productive.

Join us for a webinar on Tuesday, September 1st from 12:00 - 1:00 PM as we Ask the Experts to share their stories, experiences and sage advice for social media professionals and business leaders.

Social Media Club members and event guests will hear from Chris Hernandez and April Leonard from The City of Kansas City, Missouri.

Chris will share how the City managed its transition to a fully remote workforce in less than 10 days during the early days of the pandemic, and April will share how the City addressed community unrest and racial tensions in the days and weeks after the killing of George Floyd.

Our panel will be moderated by Caroline Jones, executive director of Social Media Club, and will include time for open Q&A from event guests. Register today to join us for an informative and engaging discussion!
