Chapter Diversity Awards

The PRSA Diversity Committee will award up to two PRSA Chapters with a PRSA Chapter Diversity Award. The awards are given to PRSA Chapters that embody and demonstrate key values in diversity and inclusion, and that contribute to advancing diversity as shown by submissions of their best practices and/or case studies. These awards recognize their local efforts as well as provide further support for continued achievements at the Chapter level.

The 2018 Chapter Diversity Award winners are:

1st Place: PRSA Southeast Wisconsin Chapter

2nd Place: PRSA Orlando Regional Chapter

Honorable Mention: PRSA Nashville Chapter


Applications for 2019 Chapter Diversity Awards will be open in 2019.
