Sally Dee Recognized as a 2024 Business of Pride Honoree

Celebrating Pride and Achievements in Our Community

Each year, the Tampa Bay Business Journal partners with the Tampa Bay LGBT Chamber to recognize individuals and companies in the region making strides in advancing equality in the business world. This year, 27 individuals and companies will be honored in the Business of Pride Awards on June 18.

As we commemorate Pride Month, Playbook Public Relations is overjoyed to share that our president and CEO, Sally Dee, is one of the 27 honorees this year. Sally’s recognition is a testament to her influential role in the community. Her leadership at Playbook and her active involvement in our community have led to significant strides in promoting equity and inclusion.

Sally Dee’s Impact on Our Community

A significant chapter of Sally’s journey was her involvement with Community Tampa Bay (CTB), where she served on the board for eight years, including two as the board chair. CTB aims to empower individuals to have meaningful conversations with those who may not look, live, or love like them, fostering a society free from discrimination. Their mission, close to Sally’s heart, is to cultivate inclusive leaders to change communities through dialogue and cross-cultural interaction.

Currently, Sally serves as chair of the Inclusive Committee at the University of South Florida (USF) Alumni Association. This position allows her to ensure that every USF alum feels a deep sense of belonging and welcoming, irrespective of their background. The committee focuses on creating engaging programs and initiatives that not only celebrate diversity but also encourage alumni to participate in meaningful, inclusive dialogues.

Playbook Public Relations: Promoting Inclusion in Business

As president and CEO of Playbook Public Relations, Sally has guided our company to proudly focus on helping LGBTQ+ owned businesses and professionals. By leveraging our expertise in public relations, we’ve created platforms for these individuals and their ventures to gain visibility and recognition, thereby challenging stereotypes and fostering a more inclusive business environment.

Through targeted campaigns, we’ve highlighted the contributions of LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs such as Bob Glaser, president and CEO of Smith & Associates Real Estate, showcasing their talents and achievements to a broader audience.

Honoring Frank Clemente

We are also thrilled to share that our client Frank Clemente, founder and creative director of Franklynn Visual Marketing, is listed as an honoree. As a valued client of Playbook, Frank’s journey and achievements testify to his efforts in creating a more equitable business environment and his commitment to inclusion.

Our Commitment to Uplifting the Community

At Playbook Public Relations, seeing our clients like Bob and Frank thrive is not just a source of pride; it’s a reaffirmation of our mission to uplift and empower every individual and business we have the privilege to work with.
