Women of RedPeg (WoR) is an internal initiative of RedPeg, an award-winning brand engagement agency that’s been making it mean more since 1995. As an employee-run program, WoR is dedicated to inspiring creative action, supporting professional development, and championing internal and external mentorship and inclusion efforts in a world where:
Women make up only 5% of CEOs in the nation’s Fortune 500 companies, and 17% of the corporate board members among Fortune 500 companies
Women hold under 24% of senior roles across the world in 2018 (a decrease from 25% in 2017)
25% of global businesses have no women in senior management roles
Women of color occupy only 11.9% of managerial and professional positions
In an effort to close the gap on these statistics, WoR seeks to inspire and invest in young female leaders through a partnership with an affirming, pro-girl nonprofit organization and the creation of the WoR on the Glass Ceiling Scholarship.
