Diversity

PRSA Recognized Rochester Chapter's Diversity Committee for Working to Increase Diversity

Competency in the Profession

The Rochester Chapter's Diversity Committee was formed in February 2008 and currently includes public relations professionals from corporate and agency settings as well as from non-profit and educational institutions. Our committee members are diverse in ethnicity, age, gender, religious affiliations and professional experience. Although still a relatively new committee, our initial goals have included finding opportunities for raising awareness regarding the value of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, educating communications professionals about the importance of effectively communicating with people from an ever-changing landscape of cultures and backgrounds, and looking for ways to increase the membership diversity of our PRSA chapter and within the PR profession.
