Cision’s Social Media Week Schedule

Handling Comms During COVID-19? We've compiled our best resources.

Yes, we are Social Media Week fan girls and we are not afraid to admit it. Gina Joseph, Teresa Dankowski & I could not be more excited to attend some of the Chicago events, and would love to see you there, too!

Below is our schedule. If you are attending one or will be in the area, let us know via Twitter!

Contrary to popular belief, we do not always wear our PR superhero masks, so we’ve included pictures in case you see us and want to say hi.

Hope to see you there!
