PRCA is launching its Diversity and Inclusion Guidelines following the PR and Communications Council’s pledge to improve diversity within the industry.
According to the PR Census 2016, the industry is 91% white and 89% British. In addition, 64% of the industry is made up of women but the gender pay gap in 2016 was £9,111 in favour of men. Only 2% of PR and communications practitioners consider themselves to have a disability. These statistics highlight the need for a collaborative, industry-led approach to tackle the problem.
The PRCA has always been committed to improving diversity within the PR and communications industry and we are pleased to be launching this publication alongside the PRCA Diversity Network on 13th February, 2018. This document is designed to act as a guide for organisations and professionals in the industry looking to gain an understanding of how to improve diversity and inclusion within the workplace and the wider industry.
