PRSA’s DE&I Resources

DE&I Committee:

While the practice of public relations in the United States has undergone dramatic changes, a lack of diversity in the communications profession persists. Many studies indicate that the industry still struggles to attract young black, Asian and Hispanic professionals to pursue public relations as their career of choice.

PRSA’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee is devoted to building consciousness by increasing visibility of D&I standards, resources and best practices for racial, ethnic, religious, sexual orientation and gender differences, as well as diverse skill sets, mindsets and cultures at all levels of the organization.

PRSA’s Affinity Groups:

PRSA’s new Affinity Groups are intended to serve as a convening method for like-minded members to meet (virtually), share ideas, and build networks and relationships.

With this program, in accordance with its 2022-2023 D&I Strategic Plan, PRSA is working to attract, develop and retain diverse members of the organization. The Affinity Groups program also will build awareness and strengthen the organization’s overall approach to diversity, equity and inclusion.

Currently, there are two Affinity Groups: Black Voices and Hispanic-Latino Groups. Learn more here.
