SevenTwenty Strategies, an integrated public relations and public affairs agency, announced today that PR News has named its President and Founder, Pam Fielding, as a Top Woman in PR for 2015. Ms. Fielding was hand-selected from a pool of the nation's most accomplished and successful public relations professionals and was honored as one of the elite recipients.
The Top Women in PR Awards considers a broad scope of female public relations professionals to highlight the best and brightest in the industry. Those honored are women who are innovating in their field and making bold advances in managing crises, developing brand messages, protecting and building brand reputations and creating content for digital platforms - for their own organizations or for clients.
“I am honored to be recognized among this group of distinguished women who are making outstanding contributions in our industry,” said Ms. Fielding. “I share this award with my SevenTwenty team. They work every day to innovate in the fields of public affairs and public relations and to help our Fortune 500 and trade association clients shape and grow their influence in Washington, DC, and around the globe.”
Ms. Fielding is nationally recognized as one of the leading pioneers in the field of online advocacy and grassroots. A policy writer, Internet strategist and author, she has successfully leveraged the Internet with traditional communications for political action and activism in numerous campaigns over the last 16 years. Before starting SevenTwenty Strategies, Ms. Fielding spent more than 10 years working in the association arena, launching one of the top online advocacy programs in the country for the National Education Association (NEA). The program delivers hundreds of thousands of emails annually to Congress and state legislatures in support of public education. As part of her work, she has identified and recruited hundreds of thousands of parents and educators on various education initiatives — using online methods.
Fielding’s work in the field of Internet politics and her successful campaigns have garnered extensive press coverage, including ABC’s “Nightline,” the Washington Post, CNN Headline News, Fortune, Business Week, Reuters, Associated Press and more. Fielding is a frequent speaker and guest lecturer who has conducted presentations on Internet advocacy for American University, George Washington University and the American Society of Association Executives, among others. Fielding is co-author of The Net Effect: How Cyberadvocacy is Changing the Political Landscape.
