Jill Gwaltney

In 1999 Jill launched Rauxa, which has grown to become the largest independent women-owned agency. She has maintained Rauxa’s culture of being “upside down” from the start with 70% of the leadership team being female. Jill has prioritized mentorship with an internal program to lift younger women and increase their chances of visibility within the industry. She also supports industry mentorship programs including that of longtime client with Verizon AdFellows. She is outspoken in the industry, penning a call to action for Campaign U.S. to champion women in the workplace. RauxaGives is Jill and Rauxa’s give-back program aimed at giving back to its communities. They partner with local non-profits to give time and money. She hosts a quarterly “RauxaGives Day of Service” where organized activities are set up in each major office for employees to participate in – from beach clean ups, to toy drives, painting classrooms or making signs for marathon runners. They also created a “Build Your Brand” workshop that aims to help youth understand how to build and own their brand (professionally and socially) as it relates to who they are, what they stand for and what they want to accomplish.
