Empowering women and supporting personal and professional growth is what WWPR is all about. That’s why I’m so excited about our #WomanUp theme for celebrating talented women communicators in the DC area. Our vision of #WomanUp means “to be bold, courageous, and reverent enough to persevere through even the most difficult challenges in work and life.”

Follow us on WWPR’s social media channels as we explore what it means to #WomanUp in life and in work. And be sure to nominate a talented young woman for the Emerging Leaders Awards as applications are due July 14th! Stay tuned for registration and more details about the awards ceremony on September 12.

In the meantime, WWPR continues to #WomanUp for the local community by launching the search for a new pro bono client. Applications for nonprofits seeking communications support that help women and/or children in the DC area are due July 31. We’re looking forward to starting a new two-year partnership to enhance a local nonprofit’s mission through communications support provided by WWPR’s dedicated and talented Pro Bono Committee. Learn more about how to apply and spread the word.

WWPR is also supporting professional development with a brown bag panel discussion about health communications on August 1. We’ll have a mix of experts sharing their insights about successful health communications strategy and tactics, plus an interactive question and answer session. Hope to see you there!

Keep on the #WomanUp train and let us know via social what this means for you in work and life! We’re eager to highlight how WWPR members shine in their work, give back to their communities, and prosper in life.
