The Philadelphia chapter of WLN launched earlier this year and we were excited to hold our first-ever event in the region.

We brought together local leaders to host an industry panel covering the most pressing topics in our business today: work/life balance (or flow, or integration), mentorship, leadership skills, and diversity and inclusion in today’s every changing cultural climate. Each panelist brought a unique perspective based on their background and experience. Moderated by Tierney’s CEO & President, Mary Austen, the panelists consisted of marketers with experience working with some of the largest national brands.

  • Dana Connors, Senior Director, Corporate Affairs, Bimbo Bakeries USA
  • Tracy Simon, President, tlsimonPR
  • Tom Carusona, Chief Marketing Officer, Insomnia Cookies
  • Hannah Hamilton, Brand Marketing Manager, Nuuly
  • Gina Range, Vice President of External Relations and Development, The African American Museum in Philadelphia

More than 70 attendees gathered from Tierney, Weber Shandwick, Octagon as well as our client partners and former interns to hear about how to develop trust within your teams and the importance of being friendly and helpful.

We loved hearing from our esteemed group of leaders and are excited to see what the future holds for this chapter of WLN in 2020.
