COUNTDOWN TO LIVE EVENT
ABOUT PRDECODED: PURPOSE+
Purpose just got more complicated.
The general consensus around, and commitment to, purposeful enterprise has come under attack by critics who accuse the business establishment of engaging in “woke capitalism.”
This year, PRDecoded: Purpose+ will advance the purpose conversation at a critical point in its development, as well as focusing on other crucial issues in the PR industry such as ChatGPT/AI, employee engagement, the future of work and much more.
Prior years tracked the purpose agenda from Purpose Principles in 2019, thru Purpose in Action in 2020, Purpose Transformed in 2021 and Purpose Evolved in 2022.
Taking place in Chicago on 11-12 October 2023, PRWeek’s sixth annual PRDecoded Conference will showcase these hot-button issues and analyze the evolution of the concept that doing good business is not only the right thing to do - it is also the most profitable and sustainable way to manage a brand or enterprise.
Adherence to non-financial factors including Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and investment in issues such as Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE+I) is no longer considered the de facto way to operate and does not go unchallenged in today’s febrile social and political environment.
Over two engaging and interactive days, PRDecoded will build on the powerful conversations from last year’s live event in Chicago, while providing ways for the PR community to connect with - and learn from - one another.
Alongside PRDecoded, the fifth PRWeek Purpose Awards recognize campaigns that use creative ideas to further positive causes and also acknowledge the organizations and individuals behind the most authentic and effective purposeful PR activations.
If you are an in-house comms or marketing executive, PR agency practitioner, client counselor at a specialist consultancy, purpose and impact professional, management consultant or commstech vendor, PRDecoded will deliver insightful case studies, best practice techniques and inspiring narratives to help you navigate the most important issues shaping modern PR.
