Gaining Ground: Your Presence

Since unconscious gender bias often favors men, women need practical tools to shift unhelpful behaviors.

Join us on September 13th for Gaining Ground: Your Presence. Created by UP Business Communications, Gaining Ground offers women an opportunity to discover their most powerful, personal communication style and an actionable strategy to advance in the workplace. UP founders, Mary Jo Romeo, leader in the sales and media industry, and Ellie Heyman, highly regarded acting coach, developed this interactive program to be fun while achieving a real shift in behavior.

You will learn how to own your personal power as a woman in the business world.

Leo Burnett, 35 West Wacker Drive

Rauxa is proud to announce its status as the largest, woman-owned independent advertising agency today, supported by data from Advertising Age's 2016 Agency Report. I am personally proud to call Rauxa home and serve as its CEO, having worked my way up through the ranks from account coordinator in 2001. Founded in 1999 by Jill Gwaltney, Rauxa today has 230 employees and six offices serving a growing client roster, which includes Gap Inc., Verizon, Allergan, Blue Shield of California and Alaska Airlines. Being independent means that we report to no one but our clients, allowing us to devise and deliver the very best solutions for them. Being woman-owned and woman-led instills the team with a powerful combination of empathy and grit that has built enduring relationships with clients, partners and colleagues.
