Edelman colleagues what is your reaction to Maria going to head up BCW HR?

Where did you get your intel? The press release I saw said Ogilvy, not BCW. Maria’s one of the loveliest people I know, but I’m excited for some more progressive thinking when it comes to HR and talent.

Its Ogilvy not BCW!

Whoops - I meant Ogilvy - but it doesn’t change the question of how folks are feeling - she’s so authentic and the real deal - I feel like it’s a big loss to employees

So I think the average employee will be none the wiser. She had already moved into a role that was much more removed than her prior position and the writing was on the wall. However I do think it’s a loss to the overall business. Maria was rare in her field that she got both the people side and the business strategy side. She’ll do great at Ogilvy.

Hey everyone! New to the platform. I’m in house counsel at an aerospace/AI company in CA & looking for some comprehensive, practical commercial contracts training.

I’m one year out of law school, and a challenge of in house for me so far has been the lack of sustained and focused training in certain areas, though I know there’s no substitute for hands-on work.
