Women in Public Relations

PRSI announces its Women's Wing

Hyderabad Chapter of Public Relations Society of India is always ahead of its counter-parts in promoting public relations in the country. In keeping with its mandate, the chapter intends to provide exclusive space for women.  This idea has been strengthened at the National Public Relations Day Celebrations held on 21st April 2011, where Smt. D.K. Aruna, Hon’ble Minister for Information and Public Relations, Government of Andhra Pradesh attended as Chief Guest.
The present ratio of women members on rolls of Hyderabad Chapter is not even 3%. Therefore, the Chapter decided to constitute a Women's wing which would necessitate identification, enrollment and to accommodating women working in the areas of public relations, advertising, journalism, media, mass communication, management, customer/client relations, hotel and hospital management and students pursuing studies in the above fields. 
The primary objectives of the Wing are: a) To upgrade professional skills of women PR personnel working in various organizations; b) To provide a platform for exchange of views and experiences; c) To organize training programmes and workshops etc., for the benefit of women PR professionals.
Should thank Dr CV Narasimha Reddi, the father figure in Public Relations for his suggestion to create a women's wing.   All the best to NL Narasimha Rao, the Chapter Chairman
