Diversity & Inclusion
The Minnesota chapter is dedicated to providing a welcoming environment to all PR and communication professionals. In 2018, the membership voted to add a Diversity and Inclusion Officer (DIO) to its board. Long-time member Marsha Pitts-Phillips agreed to serve as DIO for a two-year term. In this role, Marsha leads diversity and inclusion (D&I) efforts for the chapter including an annual half-day D&I forum.
The DIO will also:
- Provide stewardship in aligning the chapter with the national PRSA standards and best practices for D&I;
- Oversee the chapter’s D&I education, and lead efforts to incorporate D&I into the fabric of the chapter;
- Serve as an advisor to the board on matters related to D&I; and
- Work with members to increase visibility of D&I standards, resources, and best practices for the following dimensions of diversity at all levels of the organization – racial, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender, culture, skills, and mindset.
