Pride Month

woman holding pride flagPride Month is held annually in June to commemorate what have become known as the Stonewall Riots, which sparked the modern gay rights movement in June 1969. Members of the LGBTQ community gathered to protest a police raid at New York City’s Stonewall Inn.

Throughout the month, PRSA will offer a wide range of professional development and educational resources, all designed to recognize and celebrate the LGBTQ+ population within and beyond the communications profession, as well as promote the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, acceptance and advocacy. These resources, as you’ll see below, include webinars and other presentations, toolkits and editorial content. Additional offerings will also be announced and available throughout the month.

The D&I Toolkit provides members with diversity-related research, materials, applicable tools and professional development opportunities.

Its creation rests on two objectives:

  • To educate members by providing them with the resources they need to help them manage the diversity and inclusion initiatives of their own Chapters, Districts and Sections
  • To influence the composition of their professional development and membership so that the diversity of its membership reflects and embraces the diversity of the profession
