PRSA Diversity Efforts
For more than a decade, PRSA’s leaders have brought attention to the issue of diversity in the public relations profession with a mission to: make PRSA more inclusive and welcoming by reaching out to industry professionals of diverse racial backgrounds, ethnicities and sexual orientations; help diversify the industry by supporting minority candidates who aspire to a career in public relations by helping them develop industry knowledge, relevant skills and a network of professional contacts; and bring multicultural understanding and expertise to public relations professionals in order to address the diverse audiences in the nation.
PRSA spotlights diversity in a special issue of PR Journal. This issue focuses on a number of key issues, including diversity from the view of millennials in public relations agencies and diversity efforts made by public relations departments via corporate websites. This issue also highlights the "It Gets Better Project" which potentially offers a new dimension in public relations campaigns.
Read the issue on the PR Journal website.
