While Moving Forward
As I dove into research surrounding the present status of women in leadership in the public relations industry, I noticed that I couldn't recall much of women's history in the field.

Meet the women pioneers of the public relations industry...
The following is dedicated to all of the unsung heroes to whom we don't hear about. These are the women who defined the industry and blazed a trail for us aspiring leaders. You might recognize a few names from your days in the classroom, but honestly, each of these women deserves their own chapter in a textbook.

As I was crafting this video, I sought out a way to creatively visualize their contributions to the industry. Below you'll find an infographic highlighting each of these women's amazing feats.
