PRWeek’s Women of Distinction program celebrates the achievements of the PR industry’s top women leaders, whose leadership, creativity and insight continue to inspire everyone who encounters them. Alongside PRWeek’s Women to Watch, these stellar individuals in both groups set the bar high, both for their peers and generations to follow.

“Women make up 80% of the increasingly influential PR profession,” said Steve Barrett, PRWeek’s editorial director. “The Women of Distinction and Women to Watch class of 2024 will truly be an inspiration to everyone working in PR.”


Nominee Criteria

Organizations can nominate women from their comms team who consistently bring their A game to the table and inspire those around them to do the same. 

To be considered as part of the Women of Distinction class of 2024, candidates would typically be an in-house SVP or EVP at a brand or nonprofit or an agency MD, president, CEO or chair. Women to Watch would typically be a VP, senior account director, account executive, account director and below.

Job titles and their seniority vary from company to company, so please inquire if you are unsure which category to enter. For example, in some organizations VP describes the top comms role and would be more suitable for Women of Distinction consideration than Women to Watch.
