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, Equity 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.

Deconstructing Workplace Policies to Advance Equity

Oct. 13 from 10-11:45 a.m.
Across our country, leaders are working within their organizations and their communities to dismantle structural racism — and communicators are often at the forefront of that work. But where do we start? What does that look like?

PRSA Oregon’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee invites you to “Deconstructing workplace policies to advance equity,” featuring Kat Hendrix, J.D., statewide partnerships manager at Oregon Child Abuse Solutions. Kat will share her experiences in changing workplace policies and guide participants in an interactive session to help transform policies to advance racial equity. Learn more and purchase tickets.
