Drinks & Diversity: Continuing the Conversation with Uber Executive Bernard Coleman

In celebration of PRSA’s National Diversity & Inclusion Month, join PRSA Dallas and ColorComm Dallas on Tuesday, August 28, for the PRSA National award-winning Drinks & Diversity Mixer. The event will feature keynote speaker Bernard Coleman, Global Head of Diversity & Inclusion at Uber’s headquarters in San Francisco, California.

Bernard will discuss what we; as marketing, public relations, strategic communications and diversity & inclusion professionals, can do to overcome obstacles and thrive when we find ourselves at the center of implicit bias. He will help us explore:
• Navigating implicit bias at work.
• Internalizing resilience.
• Implementing helpful tips to succeed.
• Avoiding pitfalls.

About the Speaker

In his role at Uber, Bernard Coleman drives the diversity and inclusion programs and his efforts span the company’s boundaries, working in close collaboration with people-program areas like human resources, talent recruitment, analytics, marketing, communications and branding in an effort to enhance diversity throughout the organization. Bernard works through well-built, meaningful internal and external relationships to help promote Uber as a leader, not only in ride sharing, but as a forerunner in D&I engagement.

Prior to joining Uber, Bernard led the diversity and human resources initiatives at the Hillary Clinton for America (HFA) campaign, as the first-ever Chief Diversity and Human Resources Officer in United States history for any political party’s presidential campaign.

Prior to joining HFA, Bernard held senior-level roles at the Democratic National Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Society for Human Resource Management.
