Trish Cole is a graduate student at DePaul University with a focus in public relations and advertising. She received her Bachelor’s degree in PR & advertising from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Recently, she was awarded the LAGRANT Foundation Scholarship, which addresses the lack of diversity & inclusion in the fields of advertising, marketing and public relations by providing scholarships, career & professional development to minority students. As a result, Trish was given the opportunity to tour and learn about public relations at the General Motors headquarters in Detroit and participate in a pitch competition at Weber Shandwick. The experience taught her the importance of diversity in communications. Trish’s experience in marketing and business development supplements her strong writing and communications skills.
