GWPR Romania, part of the international organisation, “Global Women in PR”, is a network of senior PR women working in-house in agencies, or as freelance consultants. We actively focus on the key issues affecting women working in the public relations industry in Romania today. We are a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting female talent in the Romanian PR industry.
In Romania around 80% of professionals working in PR are women. So the reality is we cannot easily talk about a gender pay gap, as we have few men to compare salaries with…but we most certainly know that at board level PR is not well-represented.
By being part of a global community of senior PR women, GWPR Romania can help promote the evolution that is so needed to change the Romanian PR industry for the better.
What we offer
- Access to a global network of senior PR women offering cross-border support, information on best practice and networking events
- Monthly inspirational events with key international and local speakers
- We share initiatives to help women succeed in reaching senior positions in the industry and help with mentoring the next generation of female PR practitioners
