Women in Power – an Employee Resource Group at MediaCom U.S., focuses on a community and environment that encourages, enriches, and equips women with the tools to intentionally pursue and realize their professional and personal ambitions.
Created in early November 2020, the group formed with five women working as co-leads. They believed in creating an inclusive group welcoming women and men who focused on creating a safe and engaging community. The goal of the collective is to provide members with real tangible tools via a myriad of exciting platforms that will carry them throughout their personal and professional lives.
When asked “Why is it important to have this group at MediaCom?” Michelle Holmes, one of the Co-leaders of the group, states
“Gender diversity is critical and proven to have a direct impact on a company’s financial success. Women need a supportive community in which to learn, grow, and obtain the necessary tools to navigate their careers in a way that is intentional, strategic, deliberate, and gratifying.”
Arielle Heller, another co-leader of the group had this to say when asked about her role within the ERG. “I’m co-leading with Michelle, Nicoletta D’Elia-Napoli, Elyse Hoelzer & Anh Nguyen. So far, I’ve done logistics for our first event (shout out to our stellar agency & IT support!) and as we kick off our planning committees, I’m looking forward to bringing more events to life to celebrate Women’s History Month in March.”
With 60% of MediaCom made up of women, Women in Power is excited to continue the work of MediaCom by staying ahead of the curve and being a guide to the agency by becoming a trail blazer in thought leadership – attracting even more high performing women at all levels, allowing them to thrive, develop and flourish in the workspace.
