The PR Week 5.13.2016: Gender equality in PR; A new look for Instagram

The PRWeek editorial team discusses the week's top PR- and comms-related news.



On this week’s episode:

PRWeek’s inaugural Hall of Femme networking event in New York City gave women PR pros an opportunity to explore the challenges women face in the industry. PRWeek senior report Diana Bradley moderated a discussion panel that tackled some of the major roadblocks to gender equality in the PR world; reporter Alison Kanski spoke with several panelists, who shared their thoughts on the state of gender equality in PR.

Photo-sharing app Instagram revealed a colorful logo redesign this week, and though reactions haven’t approached the level of vitriol that ride-hailing app Uber faced after its much-derided rebrand, not everybody was happy with the new look. The PRWeek editorial team talks about what people liked and disliked about the rebrand.

Plus: How women and millennials are changing healthcare communications, why Radiohead’s viral marketing strategy won’t work for you, and more.
