Progress in gender diversity in public relations remains painfully slow in many ways, but Time’s Up for the field. According to The Homes Report, women make up about 70% of the PR workforce, but they only hold about 30% of the top positions in the industry.
The Plank Center hosted a free webinar titled “Women and Leadership in Public Relations.”
The Center’s 2017 Leadership Report Card found that being successful in the field is still challenging for women—the pay gap is real; the opportunity gap is real; and the being-heard-and-respected-gap is real.
The webinar discusses bridging those gaps, including action items for current leaders at all organizational levels. Led by industry professionals:
Julia Hood, founder, Pop-Up Media and AgendaZoom
Jacquie McMahon, senior account executive, Ketchum
Donnalyn Pompper, public relations professor & endowed chair, University of Oregon
Brian Price, corporate communications manager, Starwood Retail Partners
And moderated by Leah Seay, assistant manager, public policy communication, General Motors.
