(Staff training session? Client-invite event? One-on-one? You decide.) Click here to sign up.

Happy Anniversary to Us!

It’s been 40 amazing years since our founding on March 1, 1976, in Providence, Rhode Island. An agency of many public relations firsts and innovations, Havas PR North America will mark our major milestone with many initiatives that give a fond nod to our past while looking to the future. To celebrate and to honor our long history of good work, over the coming year we will undertake “$400K for 40,” a pledge to donate $400,000 worth of man hours in support of charitable organizations in the cities where we have key offices: New York City, Phoenix, Pittsburgh and Providence. And that’s just for starters. Stay tuned for more news of anniversary celebrations.
