The Museum of Public Relations presents PR Women Who Changed History


Thursday, March 3, 2022 | Free Virtual Event | 6 – 8p.m. ET

The Museum of Public Relations



A century of women in PR: Stories about meaning, balance, and a clear path forward

Thanks to PR pioneers like Betsy Plank, Belle Moskowitz, and Ida B. Wells—all of whom will be covered in this program—there are more women in leadership roles than ever before. Yet, despite this progress, the C-suites remain largely filled by men. Learn how our predecessors dealt with the extraordinary obstacles during their time, when professional women were a rarity in the workplace, and how today’s women can use similar strategies for getting ahead.
