Heather Whaling, CEO and founder of Geben Communication, takes the German root of her company’s name to heart. Geben, which means “to give,” focuses on providing its employees with a quality work experience. She also focuses on this meaning throughout other aspects of her life. Heather is an advocate for women and girls in the workforce, as well as the 2016 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award winner for the Ohio Valley region. In this episode of “Podcast with the Pros,” Whaling gives back to public relations students by sharing insights on gender gaps, social media and doing good. Listen to the episode here.
