Our Women at Gartner employee resource group (ERG) is a global team dedicated to driving recruitment, professional development, engagement and visibility of women at Gartner.
Amidst the global COVID-19 outbreak, the group was still able to organize a variety of virtual events throughout the month of March for associates to attend while working remotely.
“Despite the change in our scheduled programming, Women at Gartner pulled together. Our associates demonstrated their care for each other and their dedication to our community – sharing stories, exchanging helpful tips and tricks, and supporting each other to rise through challenging times,” says Julie Abbott, RVP, Sales Operations, and Vice Chair, Women at Gartner and Head of Women in Sales.
