This International Women’s Day, Brighouse-based communications agency Faith PR is offering free PR advice to one female-owned business to help support and celebrate women in business.
Stefanie Hopkins, the founder and managing director of Faith PR, has pledged to offer one female business owner three hours of free PR consultancy to support them with their communications strategy.
Stefanie has over 16 years of PR and marketing experience across media relations, social media marketing, influencer relations and communications strategy development.
Based on her own experience of starting Faith PR thirteen years ago, Stefanie understands the unique challenges women face when running their own business and has pledged to help other female-owned businesses in the region.
Faith PR is asking female-owned businesses in the region to reach out and pitch how they would benefit from the PR support in growing their business.
Discussing the pledge to offer free PR support to a business owner, Stefanie Hopkins said; “Despite it being 2021, gender equality has not been realised, and this year due to the impact of the pandemic, the need to shine a light on inequalities is greater than ever - global data released by UN Women suggests that the pandemic could put gender equality back by 25 years, as a result of women doing significantly more domestic chores, family care and home schooling.
“I therefore want to offer free PR consultancy and support to a woman who may already be running her own company, or someone who has been made redundant and is now following her dream of launching her own business.
“I have experienced the highs and lows of being a female business owner throughout the years and I am always inspired by working mothers, single mums, sisters and friends and this International Women’s Day, I want to support others. It’s crucial we work together to forge positive visibility of women.”
Catherine Davies, winner of the competition and fellow Mid Yorkshire Chamber member, commented: “I thought this was a fantastic offer for a fellow female business owner and, as a SME, would be fantastic to win and get that much needed support from a successful local PR agency. So, I entered and amazingly I won!
“We had our first chat recently and Stefanie was brilliant – she loved my new product/service, as well as gave me some great advice on the surface design side of my business.
“I can’t wait to get together again for our next session and find out the next steps in promoting my business, Catherine Davies Designs.”
