GWPR Annual Index 2023 cover

GWPR Annual Index

Our fifth edition of the GWPR Annual Index, designed to track and measure the position of women working in the PR and Communications industry globally, is now available.

Working in partnership with strategic insight agency Opinium, the 2023 survey includes flexible working, the barriers to women reaching the boardroom, the career impact of being a parent and – for the first time –  ‘harassment in the workplace’.

GWPR Empower programme

Empower is an exclusive programme developed by Global Women in PR for a carefully selected group of 26 mid-career women, which offers a combination of cross-border mentoring, education and profile building. Our 2023/24 programme is underway after a very successful first year in 2022/23.

See our current mentors and mentees here. Read on for further details about the programme and extracts from the masterclasses.
