NAFE’s Tips for Advancement of Women in the Workplace

Women are a big part of the PR industry workforce (though, last we checked, they still struggle to earn the same as men).

This week, the National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) published a list of suggestions in Working Mother to help women advance in the workplace.

Q&A With F-H’s Veidt: ‘I Think Women Are Taking Their Rightful Place in Management’

With Women’s History Month rolling along, we took a few minutes to speak with Susan Veidt, regional president and GM of Fleishman-Hillard‘s St. Louis office. F-H recently appeared on the list of “Top 50 Companies for Executive Women” compiled by the National Association for Female Executives. Veidt leads the firm’s largest office/HQ in St. Louis and manages the company’s central region, which includes offices in Chicago and Kansas City.
