Respect-based retention principles
Women serve as nearly half of the labor force with 21% in C-suite seats and only 4% of these seats are occupied by Black or Latina women.
In 2000, women were only 4% of the veteran population. By 2040, women will be 18% of the veteran population. Today’s women veterans are the best-educated and most diverse generation.
Employers are 33% less likely to request an interview from a woman perceived as LGBTQIA+, compared to one perceived as heterosexual.
Only 34.6 percent of working-age women with disabilities (3.5 million) are employed in the U.S. compared to 82.5 percent of working-age women without disabilities.
HBGM&Co. advocates for and uplifts women from these groups through the corporate ranks while teaching employers how to retain them. Companies benefit from high employee retention with recent research showing an 18% increase in valuation versus the average.

Honing in on the challenges confronting women and the toxic norms of corporate America, Gwenn discovered she's just crazy enough to take on an age old issue. Meet the Founder of HBGM&Co.

“I have amassed a number of powerhouse skills on my resume but was missing the job title and salary to match. HBGM&Co. assessed my skills on a macro level and matched me with a company I not only aligned with personally, but a company with a clear trajectory towards upward growth. Through development and coaching I scaled with the company from an entry-level position to middle management. The concept is brilliant and I am thriving in this new role.”
