The 2021 Edelman Trust Barometer Results: How Does Trust Impact Our Work as Communications Pros?
Power Lunch Webinar


Join CAPIO and SiOC for this special event featuring veteran communicators Matt Notley and Christi Black-Davis, who will present findings from the 2021 Edelman Trust Barometer.

Edelman’s global research measures the public’s trust in government, business, media, and NGOs to deliver information and solve problems – which is perhaps more important in today’s social environment than ever.

Data presented during this webinar will help public-sector communicators guide their communications strategies throughout the year.
