ILEA Edmonton Chapter is pleased to present Risky Business 4.0: Social Media Horror Story with guest speaker, Erin Stevenson.

Erin is a first-term Councillor with the City of Spruce Grove. She will share her experience of how a tweet on her personal account caused a social media blow out just weeks into her new position. Erin will talk about how tweets and posts out of context can be shaped by others and take on an entirely different meaning, what it is like to be a women in politics in the spotlight for the wrong reasons, the media's role in feeding the frenzy and how to rise above the chatter, threats and lies.

Join us at the City of Edmonton’s newest venue, Yorath House (13110 Buena Vista Road, NW, Edmonton, AB) from 5 pm – 8 pm.
