There's more to communicating than just talking.

Strategic + Public Affairs Communications

There’s more to communicating than just talking.

It’s what you say, when, and to whom. Whether you’re talking to communities of color, women or policy decision makers, we know that executives want to be heard on a wide range of issues impacting their organization’s future. So what do we do? Develop the message, build the audience – now talk!

 

Executive Positioning • Internal Communications

Diversity + Inclusion • Social Media • Policy + Legislative Communications

"Today's gossip is tomorrow's headline."

Walter Winchell


Crisis Communications + Management

Legendary newspaper columnist Walter Winchell once said, “Today’s gossip is tomorrow’s headline.” It doesn’t have to be. Managing a crisis requires experience, relationships and, most of all, grit. IR+Media has managed sensitive crises for some of the world’s most iconic brands. How? By seeing the crisis as an opportunity to redirect, redefine, and reengage.

 

Message Development • Stakeholder Engagement • Reputation Management

Jarvis C. Stewart

Chairman + Chief Strategist

As chairman, Jarvis is responsible for the agency's vision and direction. He is recognized nationally for the strategic and crisis communications counsel given to global industry leaders and investors on sensitive matters impacting their business. For nearly 20 years, Jarvis was one of the most sought after federal government and public affairs consultants in Washington. Prior to his consulting career, he served as chief of staff to former U.S. Rep. Harold Ford, Jr. of Tennessee and on the senior staff of former Clinton Labor Secretary Alexis M. Herman.

Jarvis serves on several nonprofit boards, and has been a guest lecturer at Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management and Howard University. He was also founding partner of the Washington Nationals. A native Texan and graduate of Prairie View A&M University, Jarvis lives in the Washington, DC area with his wife Stacey and their daughters Madeleine and Savannah.

Team

Allison Abney

Media Relations + Message Development

A native of Memphis, TN, Allison is a veteran campaign and legislative communications professional. She can usually be found with a telephone glued to her ear pitching a reporter or cranking out a release to hit the wire. Prior to joining IR+Media, Allison worked on the communications staff for the former DC Council Chairman, and U.S. Reps. Terri Sewell of Alabama and Betty Sutton of Ohio. She also worked as media relations manager at Small Business Majority. Allison holds degrees from the Universities of Memphis and Denver. In her spare time, Allison can be found screaming at politicians and celebrities making idiotic communications mistakes – on television, of course.

Thomas Bowen

Community + Stakeholder Engagement Communications

As the moral conscience of the firm, Thomas is IR+Media’s connection to local and national community activists and other key audiences. A graduate of the historic Morehouse College, with advanced degree studies at Yale Divinity School and the University of Chicago, he also serves as social justice and fellowship minister at Shiloh Baptist Church of Washington, DC. Prior to IR+Media, Thomas held positions at the Children’s Defense Fund, as religious editor at the Washington Informer newspaper and as a special correspondent at politicallyblack.com. He recently added radio host to his media arsenal, with the inauguration of “The Bowen Report” a weekly online radio show broadcasted from his home town of Elyria, Ohio.

Dionna Dorsey

Creative + Digital Design

Dionna’s love for design began as a young child with Audrey Hepburn and a coloring book. These days she doesn’t have much time for breakfast or Tiffanys. With more than 10 years of experience developing, transforming, and enriching creative packages, and leading design teams, Dionna provides strategy, brand rejuvenation, and ad campaign collaterals. Prior to IR+Media, she worked in a design house in NYC, studied fashion design at Istituto Marangoni in Milan, Italy and VillanovaUniversity. “There is no denying that we live in a world, which is dictated by our reliance on machines. With every project I remind clients about the brilliance that is the human element. No matter what line of work my clients are in, my goal is to help them to better connect with their audience by catering to the human factor.” Whew! Thanks, Dionna (wink).

Kimberly Woodard

Social Media + Digital Communications

When the Internet gods laid the yellow brick road for social media, they did so with Kimberly in mind. At IR+Media she directs social media strategy for our clients, their communications goals and reputations. Before joining the team, Kimberly worked on the government and public affairs teams at Walmart and McLane Company. A native of Washington, DC and graduate of Virginia State University, Kimberly is a K Street fixture and can often be found “moving and shaking” with her ear to the ground and smartphone in hand. Fun fact: She prefers to take Uber to the office instead of driving. “Don’t you get it? I can use that time getting caught up on morning tweets.” Yes, Kimberly, we get it.

Jelena Spajic

Brand + Lifestyle Communications

Based in Los Angeles, Jelena develops corporate brand communications strategies for IR+Media's clients, with a focus on using women and celebrity influencers. She is also founder and president of Advocate Marketing Group. Earlier in her career, Jelena served as associate vice president at 5W Public Relations where she served as head of the agency's lifestyle and entertainment practice. PR Week praised Jelena for securing one of the most important product placements in the world - securing client Belly Maternity's product to be worn in the first image published of Brad Pritt and Angelina Jolie's daughter, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt. Her other clients have included: Nike Sportswear, Oakley, Thompson Hotel Group, In Style Magazine, SOHO House, Paul Mitchell, EDEN by Eden Sassoon, Nick Cannon, MAGIC, Audi, T-Mobile, and others.
