Highlighting Black Women's Visibility in Public Relations

Our Mission:


Making Black Women in Public Relations visible by providing a space where their experiences, expertise and achievements are highlighted.



Today’s world of PR is so, so powerful. And if we are not present, if we are not visible, if we are not a voice in every single meeting project that some big company wants to launch, just calling out what we see is not right, then where, where would we be?
— Nana Anto-Awuakye


The Vision

The vision is to primarily provide data, engagement, promotion, opportunities, resources and organise events targeted at Black Women in Public Relations and secondarily, to the wider PR industry as a source for insight into the state, experiences and expertise of Black Female PR practitioners.
