Kori Bernards, Universal Pictures Exec., 2013 Emerging Leaders Awards Keynote Speaker

Every year WWPR honors extraordinary young women, ages 23-30, in the Washington, D.C. area with an awards ceremony and cocktail reception. The Emerging Leaders Awards is a special accolade for young women active within the communications field who have made a significant impact on the industry. The award highlights not only their contributions thus far, but their potential to contribute to the industry for many years to come, making them truly emerging leaders.

The fourth annual Emerging Leaders Awards was on July 18, 2013 at the National Press Club. The event’s keynote speaker was Kori Bernards, Senior Vice President of Communications at Universal Pictures. Bernards gave a lively address that focused on lessons learned and behind the scenes stories from her illustrious career. She ended on a personal note with advice for attendees to “Dream big, revise often.”

Thanks to everyone who made the event a success.
