On Wednesday, motivational speaker Anna Centrella-Thayer will open a day of industry experts, speakers, interactive experiences and conversations. Mid-day speaker, Emmy Award-winning CNN anchor and reporter Ana Cabrera, will examine the effects of “fake news” and alternative facts on consumers and the media.

Throughout the day, panelists will explore the communication industry, its challenges, accomplishments and opportunities for development and growth. Prominent media professionals will critique student résumés and offer advice on interviews, career planning and life after college.
