Political Communication to Respond to the Populist Moment

On January 30th 2019, Canada 2020 and the Ryerson Leadership Lab will host former Senior Speechwriter to President Barack Obama, Sarada Peri, in Ottawa for a free, public event.

In today’s fragmented media landscape, populist forces on the left and right continue to gain steam in the western world.

Join us in the Canada 2020 Studio to hear Sarada’s reflections on how to meet populist forces head-on, and how words can still unite in an era of division.
