ASSOCIATION OF WOMEN WORKING IN PUBLIC RELATIONS
Women in PR is an independent networking organisation for senior women working in the PR industry and also offers associate membership for mid-career women. Through our highly successful annual programme of events, we provide an important forum to enable members to share their experiences, exchange ideas and assist one another in business.
Integral to our mission, Women in PR is supporting gender balance in the boardroom, future female talent and the next generation of women leaders in the PR industry.
Our membership base reflects the changing dynamics and diversity of our industry with members from all areas of the profession, including board members of the PR Week Top 150 agencies, in-house communications directors, owners of boutique consultancies as well as independent consultants.
What we do
Women in PR is PR Week’s official partner in delivering the PR Week Mentoring Project where 15 promising, mid-career, female communications professionals are paired up with 15 female mentors in senior leadership roles. Learn more about #PRWeekMentoring here.
Women in PR runs networking events covering topics relevant to women working in PR, including flexible working, leading a communications team and becoming a NED. We provide an opportunity for members to network with some of the PR industry’s most senior leaders. Learn more about our events programme here.
In partnership with the PRCA and PR Week, Women in PR undertook a gender pay consultation with the UK PR industry. This was in response to the Prime Minister’s announcement in July 2015 that he wants to close the gender pay gap within a generation. Learn more about the #prpaygap here.
What is it?
Women in PR has a vibrant and enthusiastic membership across all sectors of the UK PR industry, including board members of the PR Week Top 150 agencies, in-house communications directors, owners of boutique consultancies as well as independent consultants.
In March 2015, Women in PR carried out an on-line survey of its members to find out more about their profile, what they think Women in PR should stand for, what they would like from their membership and what types of events they value. Learn more about the #wprsurvey here.
