3.5 million left the workforce during the pandemic. Leaders believe the talent pipeline is broken but refuse to consider talent outside of the stereotypical Ivy League outfit. Corporate America often lacks the human connection to attract, engage and retain diverse hires. Three reasons Gwenn became invested in the professional trajectory of women and overall health of corporate spaces. 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.

TESTIMONIAL

Entry-level placement of a Trailblazer within a wellness company, resulting in a promotion to Operations Manager within one year. 

“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.”
