CIPR congratulates PRSA on conclusion of PR defined initiative

The CIPR has today congratulated the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) on the conclusion of its ‘PR defined’ initiative. Commenting, Jane Wilson, CIPR CEO said:

I‘d like to congratulate the PRSA for their efforts in getting the public relations community engaged and talking in an open and collaborative way. One of the things that characterises this profession is the wealth and variety of roles we undertake which creates a vast range of different understandings about the nature of public relations. Our own research has highlighted the need for a better definition of the discipline in order for the profession to continue to secure a successful future. However, one size may never fit all and this is a debate that will continue even beyond the publication of this new definition.
