The Power of Communication: A Message from Our President and CEO

We all have a voice to bring about positive change. The COVID-19 health crisis, the grave injustice in Minnesota and systemic oppression have left people across the country feeling hopeless, hurt and confused. What you say or don’t say as a leader can have a profound effect on your organization as our country grieves and seeks to overcome significant challenges. Listen to your team, check in with them on a personal level, and most importantly, show humility and compassion for others.

Culture and community are at the core of Baker Public Relations. We stand united with our local communities to help promote positive, peaceful change and equality for all.
