Washington Women in Public Relations (WWPR) announced that Kirsten Suto Seckler will be the keynote speaker for its 29th annual PR Woman of the Year celebration.

Seckler, who serves as the chief brand and communications officer for Special Olympics International (SOI), leads the organization’s global awareness raising efforts — advancing positive perceptions of people with intellectual disabilities through sports, health, youth and school programming, while creating a fully inclusive world. With more than 20 years in the movement, and as a member of the organization’s Global Leadership Team, Seckler sets the global strategy for one of the world’s most iconic and inspirational non-profit brands.

The Woman of the Year luncheon, November 9, which honors the achievements of those who have reached a pinnacle in their profession, is one of WWPR’s signature events and a must-attend networking luncheon for Washington’s PR community.

“As a long-time member of WWPR, it’s a distinct honor to have the opportunity to be asked to speak to a room of colleagues, mentors, friends I know, and some of the future stars of our industry who are all committed to empowering women communicators to reach the highest heights,” said Suto Seckler.  “The PR and Communications industry is ever-evolving and I am thrilled to be a part of this event that will highlight tremendous leaders in the field.”

Prior to joining Special Olympics, Seckler worked in the marketing department at Kraft, where she managed the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. Seckler also spent five years serving as a print journalist.

The 2018 Woman of the Year luncheon will be held at the Fairmont Hotel in D.C.. For more information, visit: https://wwpr.org/woman-of-the-year-awards/.
