We were delighted to join senior women from Romania's PR industry in Bucharest on 6th June to celebrate the launch of GWPR Romania. One of the group's key goals is to improve the reputation of the PR industry in Romania; where women make up 80% of the profession and to increase the number of PR women in the boardroom.
Her Excellency Mona Ghanem Al Marri, Director General of the Government of Dubai Media Office and Vice President of the UAE Gender Balance Council addressed the inaugural high-level speaker series of the MENA Chapter of the ‘Global Women in PR’ held in support of female empowerment within the PR, Media & Communications Industry.
The session was chaired By Felice Hurst, Managing Director of Hanson Search Middle East.
We're delighted that regional groups of senior women in PR are springing up under the GWPR banner around the world. One of the first out of the blocks is GWPR Germany which recently held a well-attended networking event around a tour of the German press agency. Read about the visit below.
It's great to see so many senior women buying into the value of networking with peers and sharing experiences. Watch this space for more news about groups coming soon.
This is the first in our new series of articles which provide practical advice and resources for women at the top or on their way there.
Watch out for more on our themes of:- Leadership skills; Innovation; Business and finance; Public speaking; Confidence and Great books for leaders
