Harold Burson Honored with Diversity Champion Award

Posted By Burson-Marsteller

Last night in New York City, PRWeek US and the Council of Public Relations Firms honored B-M Founding Chairman Harold Burson with the Diversity Champion Award at the Diversity Distinction in PR Awards. The Diversity Distinction in PR Awards were created by the Council of Public Relations Firms and PRWeek “to honor excellence in leadership and to promote ethnic diversity within the PR sector.” The Diversity Champion award “honors an exceptional PR pro whose actions amplify and advance the cause.”

Harold was recognized for his contributions to increase diversity in the PR industry. Last year, Harold made a generous contribution to the LAGRANT Foundation, creating the Harold Burson Fellowship Program, in which a chosen student is offered a four-week fellowship at a Burson office. Last year’s Harold Burson Fellow, Danielle Chase, is pictured with Harold.
