Washington Women in Public Relations (WWPR) is a member-based professional society cultivating and inspiring female communicators to reach their full potential in the DC market and beyond. The organization is committed to providing leadership opportunities, professional development, mentorship, and industry networking.

Each year WWPR recognizes the many achievements and contributions that leading public relations professionals bring to the workplace with its Washington PR Woman of the Year Award and Emerging Leaders Awards. WWPR also offers frequent programs and events designed to help area communications professionals build and maintain networks, stay relevant to current trends, and gain mentoring and career opportunities. Every two years, WWPR selects a local nonprofit client and provides pro bono services including marketing and communications, crisis communications, media relations, branding, public relations expertise and social media expertise. Our current nonprofit client is FLOW, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to helping women and girls achieve their financial best in an increasingly complex economic environment.
