Stay updated on everything Blue Ridge PRSA has to offer!

Pride Month is held annually in June to commemorate what have become known as the Stonewall Riots, which sparked the modern gay rights movement in June 1969. Members of the LGBTQ community gathered to protest a police raid at New York City’s Stonewall Inn.

Throughout the month, PRSA will offer a wide range of professional development and educational resources, all designed to recognize and celebrate the LGBTQ+ population within and beyond the communications profession, as well as promote the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, acceptance and advocacy. These resources, as you’ll see below, include webinars and other presentations, toolkits and editorial content. Additional offerings will also be announced and available throughout the month.


In the world of PR, reputation management is the guardian angel of success. It's the art of curating and protecting the image of clients and brands in the eyes of the public. In an age where perception is everything, PR professionals wield the power to shape narratives, build trust, and weather storms. A solid reputation isn't just a badge of honor; it's the cornerstone of credibility and influence in the ever-evolving landscape of media and public opinion.

Join BRPRSA on Thursday, June 20th at noon for this FREE event!
