Public communications in a global context: A conversation with the OECD
IABC Canberra is honoured to be joined by the Public Governance Directorate from OECD to present their first Report on Public Communication: The Global Context and the Way Forward.
The report examines the public communication structures, mandates and practices. It analyses how this important government function contributes to better policies and services, greater citizen trust, and, ultimately, stronger democracies in an increasingly complex information environment.
It looks at the role public communication can play in responding to the challenges posed by the spread of mis- and disinformation and in building more resilient media and information ecosystems. It also makes the case for a more strategic use of communication by governments, both to pursue policy objectives and promote more open governments, by providing an extensive mapping of trends, gaps and lessons learned.
Finally, it highlights pioneering efforts to move towards the professionalisation of the government communication function and identifies areas for further research to support this transition.
If you want to hear how your team can have more influence within your organisation and demonstrate the value of communications in resource constrained environment, you need to join this conversation.
If you want to learn from other public communications experiences to build a stronger communications function – this is the hour of professional development for you.
