Shared insights and mentorship that drives cumulative success will always have the highest return. Talia is a true leader in public relations having spearheaded so much important work for Women in PR North America. She is a resource, mentor and advocate for our industry. It was an absolute pleasure to collaborate on the Women in PR launch event and inspire the future leaders of our industry.
Women dominate public relations—until you get to the boardroom, that is. This long-festering disconnect has plagued PR for decades, and new research from The Organization of Canadian Women in Public Relations and the Organization of American Women in Public Relations, with the European Public Relations Education and Research Association (EUPRERA), offers new insights and analysis of the position of women in the public relations industry in Canada and the United States.
"It is important for women and men to see great women leaders. Every time, a person has an opportunity to see a capable, competent, hardworking and inspiring leader, it's a chance for others to envision a future where they can guide others in their own unique way with their own unique gifts. That is done through mentorship, facilitating workshops as well as being visible whether it be in the media, one-on-one or through organizations like Women in PR."
Everything begins with an idea. Talia Beckett Davis had one a few years ago to start a networking, coaching, idea-sharing, and training group dedicated specifically to women. That was in 2014. Today there are chapters all through the Americas from Canada to Buenos Aires.
