FPRA Lake welcomes Valerie Boey, veteran award-winning reporter and President of Florida’s Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) – Florida Chapter. Boey will discuss how communicators can promote diversity and inclusion with the Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) community.
In the wake of the deadly shooting in Atlanta and increased violence against the AAPI community, Boey has been working to educate journalists and governments to assist in telling the victims’ stories accurately and with facts. During our webinar, she will share AAJA’s guidance for newsrooms on how to accurately communicate on issues affecting the AAPI community, as well as offer guidance on how public relations professionals may better reach out to the Central Florida AAPI community.
Boey is a Central Florida television reporter and graduate of New York University.
As a Chinese American, she takes pride in her Asian heritage, and enjoys mentoring journalism students and supporting several charities.
