Our Work

We can help you manage an issue, providing important insights and messaging guidance from our in-house research team. We can help build a base of support from third parties and influencers. We have helped women run for political office. We know how to train female leaders for media interviews and hearings. We write speeches, opinion pieces and more. We craft social media strategies, pursue speaking opportunities and other recognition. We use all of these as building blocks to develop a woman’s personal brand or visibility for her organization and issue.

The Women’s Leadership and Advocacy Practice is fully integrated into the firm’s public affairs, digital, executive communications and political practice areas. We offer clients experience, research insights, partnerships, and other community-building support that is essential to succeed in a crowded, dynamic media and policy environment.
