InfluenceHER by Baker Public Relations Celebrates Inspirational Women

by | Dec 6, 2021

InfluenceHER, a video and audio podcast series produced by full-service communications agency and woman-owned business Baker Public Relations, highlights several women within the Pittsburgh region.

Launched in 2019, InfluenceHER showcases Megan Baker, president and CEO of Baker Public Relations, leading thought-provoking and inspirational conversations with notable women within the local communities of Pittsburgh and New York’s Capital Region. The series covers a range of topics, including what inspires success to overcoming personal and professional obstacles.

The conversation turns candid in a closing segment called “Baker’s Dozen.” In this piece of the program, Baker asks the guest 13 swift questions, allowing viewers to learn about the interviewee on a more casual and personal level.

“InfluenceHER provides a platform to share stories of women who are trailblazers – both personally and professionally – in our local communities,” said Baker. “It is important that we support each other and channel the power of collaboration. I didn’t get to where I am today professionally without the help and support from my inner circle of women who I lean on.”

The most recent InfluenceHER interview features Dr. Kathi Elliott, CEO of Gwen’s Girls. Dr. Elliott discusses Gwen’s Girls’ inspiration and her mother, Gwen Elliott’s journey as the first female Black Pittsburgh police officer and champion of Black girls. You can watch the full episode here.

Some other notable Pittsburghers interviewed have been Geovette Washington, the University of Pittsburgh; Lisa Scales, Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank; Megs Yunn, Beverly’s Birthdays and Jasmine Cho, Pittsburgh-based artist and Food Network Champion of Season 3’s Christmas Cookie Challenge, among several others. And, there are exciting interviews in the pipeline over the next few months.
