Our Story:

From the beginning

After doing a substantial amount of research, we identified what our community needed, and we got to work to deliver it to them. We created programs to help women navigate in their careers, mentorship opportunities, and an entire catalogue of public relations courses to help others keep up with PR, media, and digital marketing trends. 

Everything begins with an idea. Talia Beckett Davis had one to start a networking, coaching, idea-sharing, and training group dedicated specifically to women in public relations.

Canadian Women in Public Relations launched in Toronto and we expanded into the USA. American Women in Public Relations was launched in New York City and the USA Advisory Council was formed.

Canadian Women in Public Relations launched in Vancouver and Calgary. Our Canadian advisory council was formed. Women working in PR started asking what city we were coming to next!

You can be at the top of the PR field.

 we believe

While PR attracts more than its fair share of female talent, there are still too few women at the top of our field as agency heads or chief communications officers.

You have a unique expertise to share.

We are creating opportunities for women to speak at events and become more visible. There is a lack of speaking opportunities for women in PR at workshops and conferences; panel sessions are male dominated.
