Ronnie Felder, VMLY&R’s global chief people officer, oversaw the promotion of two women to global executive co-directors of DEI in 2020. The team has since grown to a global roster of 10 women. More recently, Ronnie was a key player in the promotion of three women into executive or leadership roles and hiring of nine more women into leadership roles. Ronnie is also involved in the development of policies and provision of benefits, many of which are vital to employees who identify as women. For example, VMLY&R offers employees 12 weeks of paid parental leave for child birth, adoption, or foster placement, including in the case of surrogacy. VMLY&R also pays up to $8,000 per child in adoption expense reimbursement and offers educational resources to assist with adoption and assisted reproductive technologies. Ronnie is dedicated to ensuring VMLY&R is the best place to work for everyone and committed to elevating as many women as he can into leadership positions within the agency.
