Join us on February 27 at the Grand Hyatt in New York City where we'll honor the first-ever PR News' Top Women in PR. This awards luncheon will celebrate all of the honorees who have made bold advances in managing crises, developing brand messages, protecting and building brand reputations and creating content for digital platforms - for their own organizations or for clients. PR News wants its 2014 Top Women in PR to show everyone in the industry how they got on this prestigious list---what has inspired them along the way. Post a photo with the hashtag #topwomenPR.

The luncheon event will include a feature keynote address by JJ Ramberg, host of MSNBC's long-running series, "Your Business," author and business owner. JJ will discuss the challenges and opportunities facing women entrepreneurs in the marketplace.
