EWA Offers “Office Hours” With Expert Communications Professionals
Higher Ed Seminar attendees can apply for 20-minute private consultations

Want to talk over a big idea? Get advice on a career change? Or looking for an expert perspective on a workplace challenge? Take advantage of this year’s Office Hours at EWA’s Higher Education Seminar, Sept. 15-16. Among the experts who will be offering office hours are:

  • Lauren Empson, founder and communications consultant, Empson Communications

  • Sharise M. Johnson, chief communications consultant, SMJ Communications Consulting

  • Michelle Lerner, CEO, Lerner Communications

  • Alan Richard, news manager, Southern Regional Education Board

  • Dorie Turner Nolt, CEO, Dorie Turner Nolt Consulting

  • Debbie Veney, senior vice president of communications and marketing, National Alliance for Public Charter Schools

This is an opportunity available only to EWA Supporting Community Members who attend EWA’s Higher Education Seminar, and space is very limited. If the number of requests exceeds availability, assignments will be made via a lottery until the spots are filled. 

Supporting community members who submit a request for a personalized 20-minute video chat must first join EWA, if you’re not already a member. Then register to attend. Once you do that, we’ll send you information on how to sign up for Office Hours.

EWA’s Higher Ed Seminar will offer journalists and communicators opportunities to hear from and interact with some of the nation’s top higher education researchers, leaders and practitioners. You’ll hear from, for example, student activists about their plans for fall protests, mental health experts about how violent videos and isolation are affecting students, and Inside Higher Ed Editor Scott Jaschik about the stories he thinks will be making headlines this academic year.
