Otter Public Relations receives an honorable mention for their work with Wynne Nowland

St Petersburg, FL - Otter PR, a trailblazer in the public relations industry, is thrilled to announce its recent recognition as an honorable mention in the DE&I (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) category at the prestigious PR Daily Awards for their client Wynne Nowland, the CEO of Bradley & Parker, a transgender woman. 

At the age of 56, Nowland came out as trans to her entire company in an email—featured in the WSJ—saying "You've all known me as Wayne, but tomorrow morning, I will arrive to work as Wynne." She was already out to her family and many friends, but coming out at work was her final step to being who she truly was and almost everyone at her firm greeted her with open arms. 

As one of the very few trans CEOs, Nowland can provide unique insight on trans issues and workplace topics as a trans business leader and entrepreneur. Otter PR secured Nowland big hits in such outlets as Yahoo, Forbes, CNBC, and many more. The event, held on Friday, Dec. 15, brought together hundreds of esteemed communicators at the esteemed National Press Club in Washington, D.C. This recognition marks a significant achievement for Otter PR and underscores its commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion within the industry.

CEO Scott Bartnick expressed his pride in the team's dedication, stating, "This recognition in the DE&I category at the PR Daily Awards is a testament to our ongoing efforts and commitment to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in our work and the industry at large."

The event, attended by notable professionals and industry leaders, served as a platform to celebrate the exceptional accomplishments of finalists in various categories, offering a chance for networking and acknowledging outstanding achievements throughout the year.
