BY PRSA Diversity Chapters

On Saturday Oct. 16, the eve of the PRSA 2010 International Conference, eight public relations and media organizations from the Greater Washington D.C. area will converge for an evening of networking and fellowship at a local lounge. We’re thrilled with PRSA’s involvement in this great event. Not only is this a fantastic opportunity for networking and open dialogue, it’s a chance to foster future relationships amongst related organizations.

In January, the PRSA San Francisco Chapter helped organize a similar event which was a huge success, attracting more than 150 people from nine different organizations. There was so much buzz about all the groups coming together and getting to meet each other, everyone wanted more. Another successful mixer was held in June and plans are underway for 2011.

Given the tremendous success in San Francisco, we figured why not replicate this model in D.C. and other cities!

The following professional organizations have co-sponsored PRSA’s first “Unity Media Mixer”, held at the Black Fox Lounge:

  • Asian American Journalists Association, D.C. Chapter
  • Black Public Relations Society of Washington, D.C.
  • The Capital Press Club
  • National Black Public Relations Society
  • National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ)
  • National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association, D.C. Chapter
  • Public Relations Society of America (PRSA)
  • Public Relations Society of America, National Capital Chapter

Participation by this eclectic group of organizations is recognition of the importance and the need to share diverse experiences in a social setting under one roof.

Take advantage of the opportunity to meet and socialize with colleagues, old and new, at this free event!
