Laura Bishop Communications Recognition

"Last month, I was honored to present a workshop for the Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver Center for the Advancement of Women in Communication at Florida International University (FIU) and its Affiliate Center at Rowan University. Nearly 100 high school and college students considering a career in communications, as well as other professionals, attended the workshop. The next evening, students from the Ric Edelman College of Creative Arts & Communications (CCCA) at Rowan and my colleagues on the CCCA Advisory Board shared the challenges and silver linings of life during a pandemic. It was a week of enlightening, engaging experiences!

My experiences with the Centers at FIU and Rowan will continue, as I’ve been invited to join the Leadership Councils of both centers. I am so thankful to Dr. Julie Haynes and Dr. Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver for inviting me to join their respective councils. And I’m especially grateful to Edelman CCCA Dean Sanford Tweedie, for believing that I would be “a great fit” for the entrepreneurship workshop."
