October 2019 Professional Development Event

October 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace: Setting a Higher Bar in PR

The need for a diverse and inclusive workplace has continued to be a hot topic of conversation across many industries, especially public relations and communications. In 2018, PRWeek reported on a Harvard Business Review article that examined diversity across the top 100 global PR agencies, and discovered a lack in understanding diversity and little effort made to build inclusive cultures. Positive change is starting to be made across the industry, but more is required to see a meaningful impact. Research on workplace productivity has pointed to the importance of diversity in fostering new ideas and stimulating creativity. Diverse minds equal richer content.

Join us as we dive into a conversation with local industry leaders to talk about the importance of identifying diverse candidates and creating an inclusive workplace, specifically looking at how to cultivate a love for the profession among young people.

Light hors d’oeuvres & drinks will be served.
