Since 2016, WE has supported ColorComm, an organization dedicated to bringing more women of color into the communications industry and championing and celebrating those who are already there. In 2019, CEO Melissa Waggener Zorkin joined the advisory board of directors.
For the past 10 years, WE has supported, mentored and hired students and alumni scholars from The LAGRANT Foundation. Kass Sells, WE’s global chief operating officer and president of international, joined the board in 2017, and in 2018 WE dedicated more than half a million dollars in support to The LAGRANT Foundation in the form of scholarship funding, career development resources and professional workshops for ethnic minority communications students.
In 2018, WE signed the PR Council Diversity and Inclusion Pledge and committed to the six outlined actions.
