Congratulations to the 2019 Top Women in PR

At the annual PRNEWS Top Women in PR Awards Luncheon we honored the women who have made bold advances in crisis management, brand reputation, content creation, social media marketing and more in the last year for their organizations or for their clients. 

This awards ceremony honored women at the pinnacle of their PR career. They've made significant contributions to their organizations, are admired by peers and employees, and are actively involved in the communications industry.
