Diversity Distinction in PR Awards

Challenge

We must find a way to better recognize the great work that is being done in our industry that is enabling and promoting diversity.

Actions

The PR Council’s (PRC) Diversity Distinction in PR Awards reward and recognize individuals and organizations that play a key role in facilitating the recruitment, retention, and promotion of diverse PR practitioners. They similarly support and inspire professionals of diverse backgrounds, as well as those who strive to encourage and strengthen diversity and inclusion across the PR workforce. 2018 marks the 8th annual awards dinner, which will be hosted in New York City on September 27th.

Over 200 top industry leaders attend these awards every year, many of whom submit entries to
be considered.

Outcomes

Last year’s award categories included Best PR Firm Diversity Initiative ($100 million or more in revenue and less than $100 million in revenue); Best In-House Diversity Initiative; Best Campaign by A Diverse and Inclusive Team; Outstanding Young Professional; Diversity Champion – PR Agency; and Diversity Champion – In-House.

With the ever-evolving landscape that is communications, it is imperative that we are focused on fostering diverse talent and encouraging the younger generation’s interest in our field. We are proud to work with these fantastic organizations and help to push and support their missions.
