Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

PRSA Oregon is committed to building a diverse, inclusive and equitable society. We understand and uphold these values as chapter members, through our work and while serving our communities. We believe this commitment will strengthen the public relations profession and help us thrive as individual practitioners.

Diversity and Inclusion Committee

Led by the Committee Chair of Advancement, the committee comprises PRSA Oregon members who work together to build, foster and enhance diversity, equity and inclusion within our communities. Our work focuses on the idea that the communication field is stronger and more effective when it reflects the broad diversity that exists in the United States. 

The group aims to:

  1. Provide members with educational and professional diversity programming.
  2. Diversify membership and areas of chapter participation.
  3. Share diversity-focused resources for members and visitors.
  4. Serve as a liaison to PRSA’s National Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
