I bring an audience- and equity-centric lens to communications and beyond.
In academics/research, I examine equity and power concerns for communicators. At work, I craft strategies to ensure stakeholders get the information they need, at the time they need it, and in ways they understand.
What I’ve been thinking about
1st academic conference presentation is done!
I presented “Demonstrating framing choices as ‘relevant and real’: A content analysis of the diversity rhetoric used by Fortune 500 companies” at Communicating Diversity.
Sample syllabus: Social justice concerns for communicators
Communications is a field of few rules, so communicators make subjective decisions every day. This course helps students consider those choices.
For most of my life, I’ve been certain I’d never do a Ph.D., but, as stated in the SOJC’s viewbook, “Great researchers find a thread that fascinates them, and they don’t stop pulling until they’ve unraveled the truth.”
