The Maggie Nally 2023 Lecture

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) is delighted to announce that Melissa Fleming, the Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications at the United Nations, will give this year’s CIPR International Maggie Nally Lecture. This event, which is part of the CIPR’s 75th anniversary celebrations, will be held online on 4 October this year.

Ms. Fleming leads the UN’s Department of Global Communications, which is responsible for informing global audiences about the state of the world and engaging them to build support for the organisation’s work and goals. Under her leadership, the Department engages in far-reaching efforts to address misinformation, disinformation, and hate speech.

She previously served at the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) as Head of Global Communications. Prior to that, she worked in senior communications roles for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. She is a TED speaker, the author of the book, A Hope More Powerful than the Sea, and the host of the award-winning UN podcast, Awake at Night.

The Maggie Nally lecture is free and open to all to attend. It will take place online on 4 October at 2 PM (BST).
