Diversity in PR: Seeing the Value in a Time of Need

Co-hosted by PRSA Silicon Valley & PRSA San Francisco

Sponsored by: TRULIA

For more than a decade, PRSA’s leaders have sought to bring 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
  • Bring multicultural understanding and expertise to public relations professionals in order to address the diverse audiences in the nation.

PRSA’s Silicon Valley and San Francisco chapters have convened a talented group of media, marketing, public relations and diversity inclusion experts to discuss best practices at identifying and recruiting elite talent with a diversity-focused lens on October 7 during NationalDiversity Month.

Join us as we hear top media and PR professionals who will address diversity agenda topics such as: talent pipeline, supplier diversity, equitable talent development, CEO/leadership commitment, best practices and case studies.

Cocktails and appetizers will be provided!
