What we do

The PR & communications industry is female dominated (67%) overall. However, at senior levels, it becomes male dominated and women are not equally represented.

Women in PR exists to address this imbalance. Our mission is to improve equality and diversity across the industry by increasing the number and diversity of women in leadership roles. We do this in four ways:

Inspiring

women in PR to reach their leadership potential through relevant speakers, events and content

Enabling

women in PR to build their personal networks and connect with experienced, senior female leaders

Empowering

women to achieve leadership through mentoring, training, content and events

Advocating

for changes to working practices, culture and policy

Our core activities include:

  • Annual mentoring programme with PRWeek – each year 30 women have the chance to be mentored by one of the top leaders in our industry
  • Regular events – the chance to network and hear from inspiring speakers from inside and outside our industry
  • Speakers directory – a chance to put yourself forward to speak at events and a free resource for events organisers looking for expert female speakers
  • Participation in key industry and government consultations on gender pay, sexual harassment, media representation

Our mission

INSPIRING WOMEN TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL
