Since 2014, our team has had the pleasure of working with Debra A. Miller, Ed.D., APR, Fellow PRSA, who serves as the director of public relations and marketing at Quarles & Brady LLP. While she is “Debi” (or more often: “Hey Debi!” or “How about this crazy idea, Debi?”) to us, she is among the most influential leaders of the Public Relations Society of America in history. She is the recipient of both the Gold Anvil and the D. Parke Gibson Awards and became the first African-American president of PRSA in 1997.
Yeah, we’re friends with her.
Aren’t we such name droppers? #Shameless
But I digress…
Earlier this month, in celebration of Black History Month, PRSA invited leaders in the public relations profession to offer their views on diversity and inclusion and their ideas for achieving greater diversity in the industry.
We highly recommend you check out Debi’s op-ed on this topic, whether in public relations or not.
