Powell Tate
is a strategic communications firm based in Washington, D.C.

Our staff has worked at the highest levels of government and politics, from the White House to Capitol Hill, political campaigns, advocacy organizations, corporations, media, law firms, state houses and regulatory agencies. We bring not only broad expertise, but political diversity to our work.

We join forces with clients to bring critical issues to the forefront of conversation and mobilize audiences when it matters most. Powell Tate partners with organizations across sectors — global corporations, advocacy groups, nonprofits and foundations, coalitions, national trade associations and government agencies.

Whether we’re strategizing reputation or crisis plans, developing grassroots advocacy campaigns focused on high-stakes legislation or creating social content programs, we bring deep experience and diversity of thinking to help clients thrive.

Our creative campaigns amplify messages and accelerate change across platforms — driving results where earned media, digital and social media converge.

Powell Tate was the brainchild of two former White House press secretaries — Jody Powell and Sheila Tate — who believed in the power of collaboration to build successful communications campaigns.

Our legacy as a public affairs powerhouse lives on. Today, we are a specialty public affairs unit of Weber Shandwick, a leading global communications and engagement agency. In powering public affairs solutions for clients, we have access to the reach and resources of a network recognized as PRWeek Global Agency of the Year, PRWeek PR Agency of the Year and the only public relations firm named to Advertising Age’s “A-List.”
