Diversity/Multicultural

Diversity & Inclusion Statement

PRSA-NCC is committed to recognizing and celebrating all individual characteristics that make each of us who we are, both as people and as professionals. We welcome and encourage distinct contributions, perspectives, skills, experiences, and abilities to advance the PR profession. We believe our commitment will build a more inclusive chapter, representative of our diverse members, prospective members, and society overall. Respecting and appreciating diversity not only makes us better communicators but also better individuals.

What We Do

The Diversity/Multicultural Committee fosters the philosophy of inclusion and advances the notion that the communications field is infinitely stronger and more effective when it reflects the broad diversity inherent in American life. We are a multicultural society; we must become a multicultural profession and a multicultural professional association.
