October 6, 2017 – EAST ORANGE, NJ – New Jersey-based, minority woman-owned firm, Impact Consulting Enterprises has been selected as a finalist for the national 2017 PR News Digital Awards in two categories. The firm was selected from hundreds of applicants around the country as one of five finalists for the Best Blog award, and one of seven finalists for the Best Media Relations Campaign award. Impact is also a finalist in three categories of the international 2017 Stevie Awards for Women in Business, including the Women Helping Women Award and Women-Run Workplace of the Year. McCants is also a finalist for one of the organization’s top honors, Woman of the Year in Advertising, Marketing & Public Relations.
Impact’s commitment to women – as an audience, and as business partners, mentees and clients – across several projects and opportunities, inspired the Stevie Awards judges. Impact’s informative multimedia blog, and pro-bono, six-day campaign with the United Way of Essex and West Hudson on the New York Jets Man of the Year check presentation ceremony, impressed the PR News Digital Awards selection committee.

To be considered alongside such accomplished co-finalists is a huge honor,” said Cheryl McCants, president & CEO of Impact Consulting Enterprises. “As the Impact team tells our clients’ stories, seeks opportunities to center women, and shares what we’ve learned along the way via the Impact Blog, we continue to improve our skills and learn better ways to serve others.”
