Committee for Children VP Named a 2021 Woman to Watch

Shauna McBride recognized by PRWeek for her ability to innovate and inspire

PR Newswire

SEATTLE, April 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- PRWeek's Hall of Femme and Women to Watch honors communications pros who set the bar higher within their organizations.

Committee for Children's VP of PR and Comms Shauna McBride is named a 2021 PRWeek Woman to Watch.

Out of almost 250 nominations, PRWeek selected 23 women to be honored as part of the 2021 Women to Watch class, including Shauna McBride, vice president of public relations and communications at Committee for Children.

As a member of this prestigious group, McBride has proven she is up for any challenge and ready to go above and beyond to ensure results exceed business goals and achieve creative excellence.

"In her five plus years at Committee for Children, Shauna has demonstrated exceptional leadership and elevated our public relations strategy to advance our mission like never before," says Andrea Lovanhill, CEO of Committee for Children. "We're delighted to see national recognition of her forward-thinking, hard work."

Now in its sixth year, PRWeek selects women who have achieved success within their own organization, inspired colleagues, and, through innovative and transformative work, elevated the practice of public relations to new heights.

"Along with the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. also dealt with racial unrest and a politically divided country over the past year. The 2021 Hall of Femme and Women to Watch honorees all have years of impressive accomplishments under their belt," says Diana Bradley, associate news editor at PRWeek.

"The way they were also able to pivot within their personal and professional lives in 2020 amid such a storm of issues further magnifies their talents, passion and humanity."

"It's incredible to be part of such an impressive cohort of female leaders in public relations," says McBride. "My main goal as a professional is to use my voice and expertise to amplify the experiences, perspectives, and stories of others, especially those within BIPOC communities. I'm thrilled that I get to lead such meaning work on behalf of Committee for Children and am deeply grateful that my efforts have been recognized by PRWeek. Being selected as a 2021 Woman to Watch is a tremendous honor."

The 2021 Hall of Femme and Women to Watch will be profiled in the March/April print issue of PRWeek and honored at a celebratory virtual event on June 10. This event, held in partnership with GENYOUth, will feature networking and panel discussions with experts providing women with the tools and insights needed to help them chart a path all the way to the C-suite.
