On April 15, 2015, OHPI’s communications officer gave a talk to second-year students of strategic communications at the La Trobe University, Melbourne.

The talk looked at how online hate can become a strategic communications issue when companies / organisations / groups do not manage their online security or are lax in the moderation of their social media accounts. It also looked at how certain hate campaign – such as the anti-Halal movement – can become a problem for the public relations departments of corporations, companies and small businesses.
