“Public Relations Research in the Age of COVID 19”
Stacey M. Jones, M.S., M.F.A., A.P.R.
Stakeholder research is still important, especially as our organizations’ landscapes are in pandemic flux, but how do we conduct it when people can’t convene in traditional research settings? Stacey Jones will address these issues and discuss solutions as we settle in for the long-haul of social distancing.
Stacey M. Jones, M.S., M.F.A., A.P.R., has experience in primary organizational and consumer research.
