Bojinka Bishop, Principal of Sage Works, LLC is a Denver-based consultant and expert in conscious communication and stakeholder engagement. Through 20 + years of experience as Director of Public Information and Public Affairs for the American Water Works Association and others, she came to believe the “soft” aspects of business (like PR, communication, and collaboration) needed some rigor, some ethical best practices. Hence the Principles of Authentic Communication were born. As Sloan Professor of Public Relations at Ohio University, she conducted research on them (as did researchers at Northwestern University) and studies found they correlated with success and employee satisfaction. Numerous articles on the Principles have been published in professional and academic journals and are recommended in a PR textbook as well as by the Pacific Institute and others. With the birth of the Conscious Capitalism movement, Bishop believes the time is finally right for companies to treat their stakeholders with respect, and that builds economic success.
