The Dilenschneider Group opens a Miami office. The office is headed by Jonathan Dedmon, who recently relocated to Coral Gables from Chicago. Dedmon joined the group shortly after its founding in 1991. In addition to the new Miami locations, The Dilenschneider Group has offices and principals in New York, Chicago and Washington, DC. It offers experience in such areas as mergers and acquisitions, crisis communications, marketing, government affairs and international media. It has just released an updated version of “The PR Handbook,” a guide for public relations professionals that was first was published in 1967 and subsequently updated in 1979, 1987, and 2010. “Miami and Southern Florida are dynamic economies that continue to attract leading companies and individuals. It is an important location for any communications firm,” said agency founder Robert L. Dilenschneider.
The Courage Collective, a diversity, equity and inclusion consultancy, launches Boundless, a company and fellowship program designed to create access for underrepresented groups in marketing/advertising, consulting and technology. Employers can use the platform to share jobs with its talent network or work directly with the Boundless team to identify candidates for open job or internship positions. For early-career candidates, the program will begin in May and run for 12 weeks, with a focus on professional development, career growth and community. “Every single organization we have worked with through The Courage Collective is trying to figure out how to bring more people from underrepresented groups into their company,” said Boundless founder Daniel Oppong. “And while recruiting certainly isn’t a ‘fix all’ for the myriad of DEI challenges many organizations face, increasing representation should certainly be a focal point.”
