The Plank Center for Leadership in Public Relations award winner Saam Malik Hassan.

Saam Malik Hassan, senior in the Ad/PR Program at The City College of New York, is the winner of The Plank Center for Leadership in Public Relations award. The center awards five students nationally $7,500 in travel scholarships to help further their professional development in areas of public relations leadership, mentorship and diversity and inclusion.

Each scholarship provides students with the opportunity to attend two events sponsored by the Center:

  • The inaugural Summit on Diversity & Inclusion in Public Relations where attendees will gain a deeper understanding of D&I in the profession and learn about the barriers to and best practices for growing, mentoring and retaining diverse populations within the field.
  • The “Milestones in Mentoring” Gala honors leaders throughout the profession who, by word and deed, have demonstrated a superior commitment to mentoring others, and who are committed to accelerating the success of others in the field.

During his time in Chicago, Hassan will have an opportunity to gain professional insights and to see, hear from and network with more than 400 successful professionals, educators and students.
