Dear PRSA Members and Friends,
Well, no doubt 2020 is a challenging year. We are adjusting, pivoting, re-imagining our communications plans. Of course, from challenge and discomfort, comes opportunities to rethink and grow, evolve.
I am pleased to share with you, with the leadership of our PRSA Diversity and Inclusion Chair Pam Fultz (Manager of Community Relations for Vi at Bentley Village) and incoming president, Cindi Withorn (Director of Marketing with the Community Foundation of Collier County), your PRSA Gulf Coast Board approved and adopted an official statement on diversity We invite you to use it as a guide or reference for the business or organization you represent.
Your volunteer PRSA board is working to put together a special program about communicating and navigating this topic in the coming months. Stay tuned for more details. I am confident together we can create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive community.
Catherine Bergerson
