Less Polaroids and Snap Filters, More Composition and Development: What Darkroom Photography Can Teach Us About Crisis Communications and Legal Position Statements

Whether due to an allegation of discrimination or an investigation in to an injury, an organization facing a legal crisis will at some point have to provide a statement. Should the response apologetically accept responsibility for wrongdoing, or redirect focus to how much good the company does? Much like developing photographs in a darkroom, there is an art to creating a clear, compelling picture from a negative. This workshop will consider best practices for telling your story in response to scenarios ranging from media inquiries to EEOC charges and OSHA investigations. No prior knowledge is necessary for this workshop.
