Diversity & Inclusion

THE IMPORTANCE OF DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

PRSA Chicago’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee is dedicated to creating more diverse representation within the PR profession. As a Chapter that represents one of the most diverse cities in the world, we must work to foster more inclusivity within the sector, as well better reflect and uplift the multicultural backgrounds and experiences of communicators.

OUR GOAL

The D&I Committee’s works to demonstrate and amplify our Chapter’s ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion in Chicago, where more than 55 percent of the population is African-American, Hispanic and Asian. Through our support of programming topics and guests, and the Michelle Flowers Fellowship, we elevate the dialogue around diversity and inclusion in the field of communications. The Committee aims to be the credible voice and leader for D&I best practices within the sector.

OUR FOCUS

The Committee works closely with the Programming Committee to ensure the Chapter hosts events that are of interest to multicultural audiences. We also partner to secure speakers who represent diverse backgrounds across a wide range of topics.
