Diversity

PRSA St. Louis mirrors the national commitment of PRSA and champions diversity of thought, cultures, disciplines, ideals, gender, disabilities, sexual orientation and age in order to develop an inclusive Society. In addition to reaching and involving members who represent a broad spectrum of differences, we will encourage and educate members about the benefits of a diverse profession by providing information and support to help them succeed in public relations. Working with diversity and inclusion organizations, PRSA St. Louis will promote opportunities for members to engage in conversations around diversity and inclusion and provide clients with tools to serve a diverse society.

PRSA St. Louis values the rights of all men and women to work in a safe and civil environment free from all forms of discrimination and harassment. PRSA St. Louis supports zero tolerance policies for sexual harassment and workplace discrimination and supports fair and transparent processes to report and investigate claims of harassment and unfair treatment. 

Building on PRSA's national commitment to diversity in all chapters, we have compiled these diversity resources to help you generate ideas that meet your organization's needs. Providing professional communicators with the access to tools, training and opportunities to improve diversity efforts will assist in your efforts to build trust and a sense of team throughout your organization.

How do you start building a Workplace Diversity Strategy?
As a communicator, with multiple tasks on your plate at any hour of the day (or night), you may not understand what a "workplace diversity strategy" means or why your company needs one. Yet, as a communicator, you serve as the "voice" of your organization. And that voice must reach a diverse employee base and a diverse marketplace.

Living up to that responsibility can be daunting. To assist in this responsibility, we created the The Communicator's Diversity Resource Center.  Please let us know how we can make this resource more helpful to you.
