Mary Anne Gale


As Procter & Gamble’s first female plant manager, and subsequently the first female vice president in P&G’s manufacturing organization, Mary Anne Gale became a role model and mentor for women across the Unites States. After meeting thousands of women who consistently delivered excellent results – yet failed to gain commensurate promotions – she developed a set of career advancement strategies. Then, in 2003, after 30 years in North America, she transferred to P&G’s Asian headquarters, where she worked with people from countries and cultures from around the globe. She quickly realized that ‘women’s issues’ in the U.S. and Western Europe, are issues faced by men as well as women in the rest of the world.see more
