After working for the likes of Activision and Amazon, UCLA’s Mary Osako became her alma mater’s first vice chancellor of strategic communications in September 2019, with the goal of maximizing the impact of the university’s new strategic communications division. In this podcast, Osako talks to PRovoke Media’s Diana Marszalek about how she forged ahead with her goals while unexpectedly also managing Covid communications targeting nearly 50,000 students.
