A panel of Public Affairs and Human Capital (HC, previously Human Resources) professionals will talk about building bridges between the offices and how they communicate their efforts. We want to capture efforts to coordinate and collaborate within the organization.
The PRSA Public Affairs & Government (PA&G) Section is seeking Best Practices for fully integrated DE&I programs and campaigns within our government agencies and organizations. As a PR professional working with your HC/EEO departments to elevate your organizational consciousness on DEI, this is an opportunity to gather and share those best practices across our membership.
1. Identifying who owns the DE&I program in your organization and what is the current plan/program.
2. What is the relationship between the PA, HC and EEO offices in organizations? What are the roles and responsibilities of each? How can the three collaborate in implementing the plan? How does PA work with HC/EEO to make everyone DEI savvy in the organization?
3. Identify the best practices and/or gaps in your organization's DE&I plans/programs.
4. Leading Change – A Call to Action: PAG members go back to tap their organizations for current DE&I plans, best practices and provide the data that will be shared in a report compiled by the PAG Section.
