LWE to honor female marketing, media stars at Top 25 Brand Builders
Linda Wellbrock knows the numbers.
While 41 percent of the early-stage professionals the marketing and media space are women, only 25 percent of those make their way to the top.
It’s just one of the reasons why Wellbrock, the founder and CEO of Leading Women Entrepreneurs, is recognizing 25 for being the best in class for brand-building.
The luncheon event will take place at 11 a.m. Friday at Fiddler’s Elbow in Bedminster.
“These women are experts in developing, designing and achieving success with some of the most successful brands in the state and the country,” Wellbrock said.
“The honorees are amazing role models representative of the increasing impact women are making in the world of business.”
Wellbrock said this group of women can help change another statistical issue in the state: women reaching the top.
According to LWE, only 3 percent of women-owned businesses make it to the million-dollar mark and fewer than 3 percent of women executives make it to the C-suite.
