About the Diversity Network

The Diversity Network works to open up access to the communications profession and make it more representative of the nation. The Network’s Chairman is Tanya Joseph MPRCA, Director of Business Partnerships at Sport England, and its Vice-chairman is Robert Phillips MPRCA, former President and CEO of Edelman EMEA.

Tanya said: “I believe that the question of diversity will be integral to the success or failure of the PR industry in the next five years. Only with a workforce that is truly representative of the nation will we be taken seriously. This is a call to arms and we challenge PRCA members who want to see this happen to join our Network and get involved in enabling the next generation of PR talent. I look forward to working with Robert, the PRCA, and other groups working towards a more representative industry.”

Robert commented: “Diversity and access to opportunity are two of the most important structural issues facing our industry. I am proud to be associated with this project. This is not just a question of racial diversity, but also one of age, gender equality and disability. We cannot serve properly clients, companies and brands if our own teams do not fully reflect communities and society today.”

The Network follows the launch of the PRCA’s independent Access Commission that provided a number of recommendations for the PRCA to enact. These included the publication of Intern Guidelines which the PRCA published earlier this month, calling for all interns to be paid the national minimum wage. The new Diversity Network will continue to fulfil the Access Commission recommendations while also agreeing other proactive plans for removing barriers into PR, and working alongside other groups such as the CIPR’s Diversity Working Group.

PRCA members who want to get involved should contact PRCA Communications Director Matt Cartmell at matt.cartmell@prca.org.uk.
