• BPRS President’s Message

    We are excited about the many accomplishments of the Black Public Relations Society of Los Angeles (BPRS-LA) over the last several years. After re-launching the chapter under the leadership of visionary Shawn Smith, we embarked on a journey that allowed our membership to engage with like-minded professionals, develop their personal brand and build transformational careers. Our network expands beyond public relations, including members who work in content creation, social media & digital communications, advertising, marketing, journalism among other career paths. Whether you are a college student, young professional, entrepreneur or executive we offer programming and opportunities designed to take your career to the next level.

    We continue to celebrate the legacy of communications pioneer Pat Tobin, co-founder of National Black Public Relations Society (NBPRS), sharing in her mission to provide opportunity and access to people of color within the communications community. Our chapter goals are in alignment with the NBPRS and their focus on four commitments:

    • Jobs & Small Business Advocacy
    • Training & Education
    • Alliances & Partnerships
    • Thought Leadership

    By fulfilling these commitments to our members we ensure that they add value to the industry and possess the skills and tools needed to be a success in any professional environment. We offer resources for career advancement, training and education to enhance marketability, the opportunity to develop strong relationships and the support to excel in leadership roles. Our brand building events, workshops and conferences uplift and inspire, connecting companies to top tier talent while cultivating attendees’ knowledge and skills.

    We invite you to join our team of dynamic Brand Builders as we break down barriers, share our gifts, talents and experiences to champion diversity and inclusion across the industry. Build with us!
