SXSW Report on Trust: Gov’t, Tech & Media

This SXSW panel stems from the Trust Barometer – Edelman’s annual study on the state of trust in institutions, industries, and media. Trust results for 2018 revealed obvious distrust in business, government, NGOs, and media. This panel will explore the opinions of the SXSW community about trust across the industry. The panel will feature WP Engine CEO Heather Brunner, the legendary Dan Rather and Edleman Head of Digital, Jessica Clifton. The session will be moderated by the CEO of Edelman, Richard Edelman.

This event will take place at the JW Marriot from 3:30-4: 30 pm on Friday, March 9th.
