We are creating opportunities to position women at the top of the PR field.

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.

“We are all responsible for talking openly and creatively about how we can continue to push for environments where women can lead and succeed.”

— Scott Evans, General Manager, Edelman Toronto

We have produced a research study with the European Public Relations Education and Research Association (EUPRERA), aimed at analyzing the position of women in North America’s public relations industry (Canada and the United States).

The research report aimed to establish whether organizational culture and the socialization process influenced women’s ability to progress in their careers. The research project examined three pre-determined groupings, synonymous with other EUPRERA projects across Croatia and England.

The North American report examined the lived experiences of women in public relations; the office culture such as networking, interaction at work, and dress codes; and the socialization, leadership, and ability to see other senior women as role models.
