The Inez Y. Kaiser Story

This event is the first in a series of Inez Kaiser GKC-PRSA events to tell the story of Inez Kaiser, the first Black person to join PRSA and one of Kansas City’s hometown chapter’s legends. Rick Kaiser, Inez Kaiser’s son, will introduce Shelley Spector, Executive Director of the Museum of Public Relations who will introduce Procter-Rogers. A Q&A will follow the Procter-Rogers presentation. An email with the Zoom link will be sent April 26 to those who register.

Cheryl Procter-Rogers, APR, Fellow PRSA, MCC will address how storytelling underpins how historical moments are remembered. As public relations professionals, this art is an essential skill in our toolbox and creates a pathway for putting any big moment into historical context. She’ll address how the art of storytelling, when used masterfully, can connect us to our own humanity and root us in our passion with purpose. History plays an integral role in our lives personally and professionally and this presentation celebrates our role in historical moments with a focus on how to become a masterful storyteller.
