Diversity & Inclusion

PRSA Orlando Chapter D&I statement

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral elements of a vibrant community and essential pieces to our organization’s mission. PRSA Orlando is committed to fostering a public relations and communications network where all of our members are valued, respected and supported. We champion diversity and inclusion at all levels of our organization by involving chapter members who represent a broad spectrum of differences in our programming, leadership, as well as providing opportunities for all voices to be heard and represented.

This is not about checking a box. It is transparent and intentional. Our inclusive approach to what we do and who we are is a priority that ensures the success of our chapter, our profession, and the communities in which we live and work. 

The PRSA National Diversity and Inclusion Committee has defined its role with regard to diversity and inclusion as follows:

To champion diversity of thought, cultures, disciplines, ideals, gender, disabilities, sexual orientation and age in order to develop an inclusive Society. By reaching and involving members who represent a broad spectrum of differences, we will encourage and educate members about the benefits of a diverse profession by providing professional development, knowledge and support to help them succeed in public relations.
