Strategic Communication lecturer Dr. Lilian Ajayi-Ore, Ed.D., has been named one of the top fifty learning and development (L&D) professionals by OnConferences for 2022. She was chosen by peers for outstanding contributions and positive impact on L&D communities and academic institutions.

“I am deeply grateful to OnConferences for the award recognition,” Ajayi-Ore said. “Thank you for the incredible honor. Congratulations to all my fellow L&D professionals who were on the list.”

Oncon Icon Awards are voted on by international and U.S. professionals in marketing, L&D, human resources, and other industries. 

Dr. Ajayi-Ore is teaching two sections of Digital Communication Strategy in the fall semester. The class shows students how to use a range of digital media platforms to reach a targeted audience.
