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.
American Women in Public Relations (Women in PR USA) was officially launched in New York City and the USA Advisory Council was formed. The New York City Chapter is the Founding Chapter of Women in PR USA.
After launching in Vancouver and Calgary, women working in PR started asking what city we were coming to next! That's when we started planning our upcoming events to connect our members across the Americas.
In February 2019, we launched our Seattle Chapter in partnership with the Digital Summit. We also started a new magazine for women in public relations, and a premium job board for senior leadership positions.
Launched the Public Relations Academy online training and coaching program. Formed a new research partnership with the European Public Relations Education and Research Association.
Launched the Collective Club for Women in PR globally and our annual PR Leadership Conference.
Conducted research with our partner organizations. Continued to expand our Chapters across the Americas.
Our organization returned to hosting in-person events, and we hosted our annual garden party.
Our Founder, Talia Beckett Davis, organized the US Climate Investor Conference in New York City, and the Canadian Climate Investor Conference in Toronto. Our network of PR and media professionals joined us for the inaugural events!

Women dominate public relations—until you get to the boardroom. This long-festering disconnect has plagued PR for decades, and research from the Organization of American Women in Public Relations (Women in PR USA), the Organization of Canadian Women in Public Relations (Women in PR Canada), and 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.
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 USA and Canada. 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.
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.
"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 USA and Canada."
