The PR Network teams up with WPR to support UK PR professionals

We’re delighted to announce a new collaboration with the Women in PR networking group, a sector group of the Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA). Set up over 50 years ago, WPR is an independent networking organisation for senior women working in the PR industry and also offers associate membership for mid-career women. The group provides an important networking platform to enable members to share experiences, assist one another in business and exchange ideas.

It is led by former PRN associate Mary Whenman as President, elected in earlier this year, supported by Vice President Shelley Facius, also a former PRN member, backed by a diverse Steering Committee. The WPR group will address industry issues including:

• Gender balance in the boardroom
• Supporting future female talent and the next generation of women leaders
• The need for greater diversity within the UK PR industry

The WPR membership base reflects the changing dynamics and diversity of our industry with members from all areas of the profession, including board members of the PR Week Top 150 agencies, in-house communications directors, owners of boutique consultancies and freelancers. We have teamed up with WPR to secure a 50% discount on the annual membership fee to just £50.00 for qualifying members of The PR Network.

The WPR membership package includes access to a range of ticketed events at a reduced price, exclusive discounts for quality retailers and restaurants and much more. Find out more and apply to join HERE.

We are also working with WPR to create an event about flexible working in PR on 21st May – details to be announced next week. PRN members who want to register interest please email

The PR Network is a consultancy member of the PRCA and will shortly be announcing another collaboration with the organisation – watch this space for news.
