Building a More Diverse, Equitable and Inclusive Professional Association
The mission of FPRA’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force is to build and sustain a statewide culture in diversity, equity and inclusion, while advancing the public relations profession in Florida. The Task Force is committed to providing guidance and educational resources on DE&I to FPRA and its members, diversifying our membership and leadership, and educating diverse audiences on the value of FPRA in their careers.
In 2022, the Task Force collaborated with a DE&I consulting team. The team analyzed 49 pages of data collected through our DE&I membership survey, conducted 12 in-depth interviews with a cross-section of diverse FPRA members and led our Task Force through online trainings and discussions to determine our focus. The recommendations in their report will guide our DE&I work together in the next few years.
We will work to ensure in the years ahead that FPRA’s leadership reflects diverse demographics and the communities our chapters represent. We will also look for ways to assist in the diversification of our profession.
