Women in public relations : how gender influences practice by Larissa A Grunig( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The last 20 years have seen an influx of women into the practice of public relations, yet gender-based disparities in pay and advancement remain a troubling reality. As the field becomes feminized, moreover, female and male practitioners alike confront the prospect of dwindling salaries and prestige. This landmark volume presents a comprehensive examination of the status of women in public relations and proposes concrete ways to achieve greater parity in education and practice. For educators and students, the book provides ideas and data that will bring gender and other diversity issues into the forefront of discussion
"What Have You Done for Me Lately?" : Exploring Effectiveness in Public Relations by Linda Childers Hon( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Little academic research has examined what public relations actually does for an organization. A study explored definitions of effectiveness in public relations and the value of effective communication. Interviews with 32 practitioners and 10 organization heads revealed numerous definitions of effectiveness, most having to do with achieving objectives for communication programs. The organizations for which these practitioners work include corporations, nonprofits, government, associations, and public relations agencies. Information is anecdotal and represents a breadth of perspectives. Some of the respondents included an adjunct professor who mentioned that effectiveness in employee relations makes money for organizations by improving job satisfaction and productivity, a publications manager for a state university who believed that her internal communications efforts have boosted job satisfaction and morale, and a director of development and alumni relations for a state university who argued that the visibility generated by effective public relations advances her department's goals. Other examples of effective programs uncovered are those whose respondents believe that public relations brings value by helping organizations survive when threatened, making money by fostering good relationships with key publics, and saving money through preventive media relations. One executive argued that the communication function could be elevated by better conveying the power and value of public relations in helping organizations move toward their goals.

Dimensions of Diversity Ideology and Group Membership as Predictors of Diversity Implications by Linda Childers Hon( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A survey was conducted to examine whether an underlying structure existed among items related to the practice of diversity, particularly practices related to diversity as an institutional process versus diversity as an assured outcome. The survey also examined whether a structure existed among items related to attitudes and beliefs about the outcomes of diversity, and sought to discover the utility of treating the practice measures as predictors of the outcomes measures. Respondents were 6 female and 4 male faculty members (8 were Caucasian and 2 were African-American) from a large southeastern college of journalism and communications with 59 full-time faculty (68% male/32% female with 12% racial minorities). Findings suggest a single dimension underlying responses to the policy items, and five dimensions underlying responses to the diversity outcome measures. Analysis of the five outcome measures showed ideology as a significant predictor of subjects' beliefs about diversity implications while group membership was not. It was concluded that ideology may be a strong yet relatively unexplored variable in understanding faculty's attitudes about the effects of diversity policies. What was uncovered in this research was a clear dichotomy in ideology and at least two different views of the world. Further research is needed to explore the multidimensional issues uncovered in this research. (Contains 5 tables of data and 38 references.) (Author/CR)
