In honor of Pride Month, members of our Board of Directors who identity as part of the LGBTQ community share what pride means to them as public relations professions.
Barbara Cosio Moreno
Public Affairs Manager, Caltrans
“Pride for me is about being comfortable and confident in my own skin. As a Public Relations, Communications, and Public Affairs professional, my visibility provides representation and a voice to my community, while hopefully, empowering the next generation of PR Pros. By having a seat at the table, I provide intersectionality – as a woman, as a member of the LGBTQ community AND as a Latina.”
Principal, Alternative Strategies
“Having owned and operated a marketing and communications business in San Diego for over 20 years, I have dedicated my career to keeping in touch with the pulse of our local culture. My efforts to give back to the community and the leadership roles I play, have given me pride, not only as a contributing member of society, but also, as a gay and Hispanic man who has risen above roadblocks and prejudices to serve the city I call home.”
Marketing and Communications Manager, Museum of Photographic Arts
“As a PR professional, Pride means to me, inclusivity and belonging. Ensuring that campaigns and stories represent those in our everyday life. Be sure that representation is at the forefront of every brainstorm. Acknowledging past mistakes and working to decolonize stigmas.”
