ARDMORE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gregory FCA announces a new initiative designed to promote diversity within the communications and public relations industry here in the Delaware Valley. The Gregory FCA Diversity Initiative will award two $2,500 scholarships to college senior students majoring in public relations, communications, marketing, journalism or related fields of study. The students will also receive a paid 90-day internship, gaining exposure to the industry and the firm’s strong reputation for developing public relations professionals.
“Our goal is to provide a pathway for students to gain a first step up the public relations career ladder,” says Joe Anthony, partner, Gregory FCA. “We believe deeply in our industry and feel it can benefit dramatically from a workforce and worldview focused on diversity and inclusion.
