How do we rebuild trust in an era of global turmoil?
Society at a crossroads: Huge societal fractures have been exposed. Brexit, Social Inequality, The Capitol Insurrection, and the COVID-19 pandemic have impacted us in ways we are still only beginning to understand. How do we begin to rebuild trust? What role can media leaders play in leading that process? What are the responsibilities of business leaders in shaping a better and more empathetic future? How does government need to respond? What does our brave new world look like?
Joining this panel discussion is Peter Vandermeersch, Publisher at Independent News & Media, Ciara Kelly, Radio Presenter at Newstalk & Aine Kerr, COO at Kinzen. This panel will be facilitated by Feargal Purcell, Head of Public Affairs at Edelman.
