mBolden Merges With She Runs It

The She Runs It team is committed to nurturing our membership with its robust offering of inspirational content, professional development, and industry events as well as:

  • The industry's largest mentoring program

  • Extensive networking opportunities

  • Committee participation in specific markets

  • Award programs that spotlight and celebrate the accomplishments of successful leaders whose journeys fuel and inspire others

  • Qualification for educational loan relief

  • Participation in #Inclusive100, which delivers DEI tools, insights, and actions to an expanding group of companies


As the two organizations come together, the mBolden name and logo will be retired. Our entire mBolden community is invited to join She Runs It, first through a free, three-month trial membership that will begin in mid-January. Members will then have the option of signing on for annual membership starting April 1, 2021. The cost of membership is:


  • $150 per year for members over 30 who sit in She Runs It's core markets, Chicago and New York. Members have full access to events (virtual and potentially live), the mentoring program, education loan relief qualification, committee participation, and more. 

  • $80 per year for Chicago and New York members in early career stages (1 to 5 years), which entitles members full access to events (virtual and potentially live), the mentoring program, education loan relief qualification, committee participation, etc. 

  • $100 per year for eMemberships (members who sit outside IL or NY). eMembers have virtual access to monthly events, group mentoring sessions, curated networking circles, and the member directory.  NOTE: GROUP MENTORING AND NETWORKING CIRCLES WILL BE AVAILABLE AT A LATER DATE TO MEMBERS RESIDING OUTSIDE THE US AND CANADA.


The mBolden community will have access to more resources, events, and opportunities for women in digital fields, particularly because in an 'everything digital' universe, our goals are harmonized. Media, digital, and advertising are core to the value set of both organizations. With this merger, we remain committed to providing a platform of resources and opportunities to support women's growth in this industry throughout their careers.


You will receive more information in the coming weeks, including instructions for activating your free She Runs It trial membership. She Runs It is also scheduling a new-members meeting in January that you will be invited to attend.


This is a fantastic way to end a challenging year, and I speak on behalf of the entire mBolden leadership team when I say that we’re excited and proud to become a part of She Runs It.  The achievements accomplished from this community will always stay with me and I am eternally grateful to have had the opportunity to participate and lead such truly inspiring group of women in digital. 


Wishing you all a happy and peaceful holiday season and a prosperous and productive start to 2021.






Dearest mBolden Community,

I am delighted to share with you all that effective January 15, we will be joining forces with She Runs It, a well-established (108-year-old) non-profit organization that exists to pave the way for more women to lead at every level of marketing, media, tech, and digital. Our two organizations will merge under the She Runs It name, creating the marketing industry's largest member organization–more than 10,000 people strong–dedicated to supporting and advancing women leaders in our field.

President, mBolden
