About the Diversity Distinction in PR Awards

diversity-vertThe Diversity Distinction in PR Awards reward and recognize individuals and organizations that play a key role in facilitating the recruitment, retention, and promotion of diverse PR practitioners. They similarly support and inspire professionals of diverse backgrounds, as well as those who strive to encourage and strengthen diversity and inclusion across the PR workforce.

For 2017, award categories have been updated to encourage more participation by organizations of all types and sizes. In addition, Honorable Mentions will be awarded in all categories where judges determine there are entries worthy of such a distinction.

In an effort to further highlight the tangible benefits of a diverse and inclusive staff, the PR Council and PRWeek are also proud to introduce two new categories this year – Best Campaign by a Diverse and Inclusive Team and Outstanding Young Professional.
