Best PR Firm Diversity Initiative: APCO Worldwide
Best PR Firm Community Initiative: Porter Novelli
Diversity Champion: Kim Hunter
This year marks the debut of the Diversity Distinction in PR Awards, supported by the Council of PR Firms in association with PRWeek. These awards aim to address the problem of attaining a more ethnically diverse workforce at all levels.
In conceiving of such a program, we hoped to raise the issue's visibility; to strengthen diversity inclusion practices across PR; and that this year's honorees would set an example for those running PR agencies.
Submissions were accepted from mid-August until mid-October from US-based PR firms of all sizes. Winners in three categories - Best PR Firm Diversity Initiative, Best PR Firm Community Initiative, and Diversity Champion - were selected by an experienced judging panel on October 26, 2011.
