The Information Apocalypse by Mari K. Eder
Start Date: 1/23/2019Start Time: 7:00 PM

Event Description:
Mari K. Eder, a retired U.S. Army major general and president of the business consulting company Benson’s ReView, LLC, will discuss “The Information Apocalypse” on Wednesday, Jan. 23, at 7 p.m. in the multipurpose room of the Frank G. Pogue Student Center.

Eder, a world-renowned speaker and author, will examine the complex and rapidly evolving public information landscape and the factors degrading the effectiveness of mass communication. She will address “fake news” and the erosion of confidence in conventional journalism caused by user-generated content in a toxic environment.

Eder has served her country and the communications profession with distinction. She retired from the U.S. Army in May 2013 after 36 years of dedicated service in a series of executive leadership assignments at the highest levels. At the time of her retirement, she was the senior female general in the U.S. Army Reserve and one of only six in the U.S. Army.

Utilizing her extensive experience in communications and international relations, Eder regularly consults, advises and speaks to government organizations and universities on national security, communications and leadership topics.

A native of Grove City, Pa., Eder holds a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English from Edinboro University and the Master of Strategic Studies degree from the U.S. Army War College. She is also a graduate of executive and senior leadership programs at the National Defense University and the Army War College, and she received an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Edinboro University in 2013.

She was awarded the Vatican Award of the Knight, Grand Cross of the Order of Saint Gregory the Great from Pope Benedict XVI in 2011, becoming one of only 200 people in the world to hold the distinction. In 2017, she was inducted into the Army Public Affairs Hall of Fame and received the Joe Galloway Lifetime Achievement Award for excellence in strategic communication.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
