Edelman’s Global Women’s Executive Network (GWEN) is an empowered group of people who are committed to networking, mentoring, recruiting, collaborating and career planning for women at Edelman. Our objective is to increase the presence of women leaders at the most senior levels of our firm and create an environment where women are encouraged to lead and succeed.
GWEN has more than 800 members globally, with every region and job level represented. The group stays connected through weekly emails, an intranet site, social media, quarterly global webinars, local office events, guest speaker series, book clubs and more. Led by Gail Becker, president of strategic partnerships and global integration, GWEN’s steering committee leads a series of working groups focused on both region-specific goals as well as specific areas of focus including policy, sponsorship and mentorship, recruiting, education and career pathing. Gail frequently writes about women in leadership on her blog.
