Vancouver, BC— June 6, 2022 – Hootsuite's Chief Marketing Officer, Maggie Lower, has been selected by AdWeek as a winner in the outlet’s annual Pride Stars Awards. The award recognizes remarkable LGBTQ+ leaders across the media, marketing and technology industries, who have a long track record of accomplishing and advocating for impactful work. This year, AdWeek honored 20 movers and shakers in the LGBTQ+ community as award recipients.
In its third year, the class of Pride Stars includes several leaders and visionaries who are finding new ways to make a meaningful difference. The individuals stood out to AdWeek’s editorial team and were chosen for their commitment to breaking down barriers for LGBTQ+ individuals in their respective industries.
“It is an incredible honor to be recognized as a Pride Star alongside so many talented and inspirational individuals in this community, many of whom I look up to and have deep admiration for,” said Maggie Lower, CMO, Hootsuite. “This recognition is a true testament to all the progress we've made as a community to ensure that our people feel visible and protected.”
Lower joined Hootsuite as a key member of the company’s executive leadership team in 2021 and has made significant progress in promoting visibility and championing inclusivity since day one, including taking on the role of executive sponsor of the LGBTQ+ Employee Resource Group. She was also recently appointed to the Board of Directors for Grindr and, in addition to her role as a talented marketing and business executive, is a community leader that works with a variety of not-for-profit organizations, including The Collective and the RAHM Group.
“At Hootsuite, we wholeheartedly believe that inclusivity is at the heart of connection. However, our work is not done yet. Our climate today is often a painful reminder that progress can quickly erode if we lose our focus,” added Lower. “It’s inspiring to see organizations like AdWeek breaking down these barriers and shedding light on the incredible work that the LGBTQ+ community has produced to move the needle towards a more inclusive future. This list does not just celebrate the few of us — it’s a sign of hope for all.”
