The Public Relations Society of America Hoosier Chapter, Indiana’s statewide society of public relations and communications professionals is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2022 diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) grant program.

The DEI program grant aims to assist those public relations professionals who identify as Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color (BIPOC) by covering either the dues for PRSA national and local membership for one year or, with an additional grant, covering the one-time fees associated with getting the APR certification. This new initiative highlights our chapter’s continued commitment to improving diversity and inclusion in our membership and the broader profession.

Please join us in congratulating Hyacinth Rucker, recipient of the APR grant and Lateva Woolfork, recipient of the new membership grant.
