Empowering Professional Women

Emerson, The Atlantic & LinkedIn Partner to Create Compelling Conversation on Women in the Workplace.


Emerson sought to engage the business community in a conversation about empowering women in the workplace, with the ultimate goal of positioning itself as a leading employer for women in the STEM professional marketplace.


Through a unique partnership with The Atlantic and LinkedIn, Emerson tapped into The Atlantic's editorial library to surface relevant content for professional women on their LinkedIn Company Page. Not only were they able to engage the hand-raisers already following their brand, but they were able to reach the larger audience of professional women on LinkedIn by promoting their content with Sponsored Updates. The program enabled Emerson to seamlessly align with relevant Atlantic content on LinkedIn and also drive readers to thought-provoking, Emerson-owned article pages on TheAtlantic.com.
